Putting together my first build. Need advise Tags: Asus Motherboards Product Last response: November 26, 2011 8:58 PM in Motherboards Share gtsebek November 26, 2011 8:41:53 PM I'm building my first desktop, mainly for music production some video editing and some gaming. I've done a lot of research over the last couple days and I've decided that I'm going to go with the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6813131759 Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6819115072 CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6817139015 Is that a good combo so far? with the maximus iv gene-z mobo, will i be able to add a nice video card? as well as adding sound card? there is so much to choose from, but would be the rest of the parts to add to make this a good build? ram, ssd etc. Thanks, More about : putting build advise nna2 a b V Motherboard November 26, 2011 8:58:53 PM you have 2 PCI-E slots on that mobo and 1 PCI, but by the looks of it, you would only be able to fit one gfx card and a sound card for ram you could go with http://www.corsair.com/memory/intel-memory-upgrades/dua... i would suggest http://www.corsair.com/memory/intel-memory-upgrades/dua... you wont really need a SSD, i would go with a hardrive, cheaper and larger (in most cases larger) do you have a case?... Im not very good with cases PSU, its a little overkill but http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/cmrpp750/ your links broke so heres a link to the mobo http://ca.asus.com/en/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/Ma...
