Those 2 are good stuff. Can't you get a better GPU tho? I think it be kind of a shame to have just a 560 Ti ( don't misunderstand me tho it is a very good GPU)

If you read the comments there's a guy that says it does not work while another one says it's using them both. That motherboard uses a Z77 chipset which is designed for Ivy Bridge CPU's so it is supposed to work.
The 7850 is faster than the 560Ti so it would be better if you can afford it

It is a decent card for a great price : )

And, yes, it is compatible + great CPU = no bottleneck anywhere.

That MSI board is a mATX, it would be better to get ATX. It cools better and has more features usually.

mATX at that price range will not offer as high overclock as ATX will.

Its also not Z77, but H77.

But that GPU SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7850 2GB is great and will do better than the other one.

HD 7850 takes much less power, so its good to consider that.

OK, do u have a good cooling case? I don't recommend small factor mobos, only when users like them.

If u will get that HD7850, u are fine with mATX too, because that GPU runs cool.

I was reading that OC'd edition has better cooling and some guys wrote that wasn't the case.

Its only $10.

The case is good. About the mobo, why don't u get the Gigabyt ATX that u posted, I would.

It would run cooler and it will give u more space to play with hardware.
