Yea, good choice on the 760, I'd go for the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro, i'm about to do an i5 build and am looking at a 760 with that motherboard, it does 6GB SATA and USB 3.0 quite well too for the future. I personally like ASUS, plus ive heard a few too many stories of MSI boards burning up with high overclocks .

And i agree with mianmars - go for 8GB RAM, the price difference isn't that much for the extra 4GB.

No point for 8 gigs.... you won't see performance increased, unless for 3D rendering or Video editing...

Bad RAM, High CAS timings, only 1333 MHZ.... get this RAM, 'tis better! G.skill 4 gigs http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ~ 77.99.... Yes it is 4 gigs for a few dollars less then the 8, but the performance of 8 vs 4 in gaming is..... minimal to say the most... basically this better ram or meh ram, but MORE... lol your choice... plus I'd say you could buy another kit in 6 months or so.... check out this http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ram-memory-upgrade,... and this http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ram,1190-7.html
