  1. Fill out the form in the sticky, link in my sig.

    Don't get a microatx board if you're not building micro, saves headaches.

    PSU is a horrible choice. Spend a little extra and get an antec earthwatts, or XFX 650 BE, or seasonic.

    RAM wise I'd go with G skill
    Cas 7 for $5 more, or cas 9 for $5 less.
  2. I forgot about the microatx on that board. as for the PSU and RAM i will probably do as you suggested thanks a lot.
  3. If microcenter is an option and u need USB/SATA 3.0:
