Hi, building a new system , and have a bit of financial constraints at the moment(fiance
So Far this is what has been ordered
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W
Coolermaster Haf 922 Mid Tower ATX Case Black
pretty much decided on this processor
Intel Core i5 760 Quad-Core Socket LGA1156
i have a brand new 250gts msi gpu(friend owed me afavor, will upgrade this in future but atm has to do)
i need help basically with this build and what mobo to put in it
i am debating with the
Asus Maximus III GENE Socket 1156 vs ASUS P55 MOTHERBOARD SABERTOOTH , I realize the maximus is a matx, but the reviews on it for overclocking are pretty decent, i think
ram will be i think G.SKILL Ripjaws Series DDR3 1600MHz (PC3-12800) 4GB (2x2GB) Dual Channel Kit (F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL)
if i get the maximus mobo, from what i have read they seem to be a good match.
input will be appreciated, ty
also a decent aftermarket cooler suggestion for the cpu be appreciated

For that price range, I would rather suggest this board -
You wont get SLI, but USB3.0 and SATA 6GB/s
Or this -
Or this if you want all...
