  1. 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)
  2. is it worth getting a hd 7850 ?
  3. in the comments section of that biostar board saw that this board doesnt support i5 - 3450. can u suggest some other motherboard ?
  4. 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
  5. im thinking of changing my parts .. how about SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7850 2GB and MSI H77MA-G43 ?
  6. How about to get a better mobo?

    ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX

    was: $154.99 ->$124.99 + FREE SHIPPING

  7. It is a decent card for a great price : )

    And, yes, it is compatible + great CPU = no bottleneck anywhere.
  8. If u get an after market CPU cooler, u can OC to 4.5GHz or so : )
    COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler

  9. 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.
  10. i dont want to CFX later.will use one ssd and one hdd. isnt a mATX board enough? and the cpu is not a 'k' version thats why i went with h77
  11. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128550 How about this? it is ATX. i only need a h77 since i will OC only GPU
  12. It is OK, I just posted more options for u, but only u know your budget : )

    OK, for what u want its enough.
  14. But that is a mini itx board. Is the MSI board gonna be a problem because it is a mATX ? wont i be able to OC my GPU to its full potential ?

    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.
  16. i will get the Sapphire or Gigabyte 7850. gigabyte is OCed. Im planning to get Sapphire and OC myself. or is the $10 worth the high factory OC? mostly will be getting the mATX board. But if ATX is better i ll consider http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128548 . this is my case NZXT GAMMA Classic Series GAMA-001BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  17. 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.
  18. Alright Nikorr. So shall i finalize Gigabyte ATX and Gigabyte OC'd 7850 ?
