My son and I are building a budget gaming pc. Please comment on our choices. Our main concern is whether the 2x4gb G.Skill will work with the Asus mobo because the QVL only lists the 2x2gb version of G.Skill. We don't need Crossfire or USB 3.0.
ASUS P7H55-M LX
ASUS EAH6850 Radeon HD 6850
G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UB
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V
Three 4-year-old IBM 250gb SATA drives for storage. Raid unnecessary, but if available, I'll use it.
