  1. What do you guys think for battle field 3 and diablo 3? any suggestions welcome
  2. I'm not thrilled with the motherboard, I'm just not a fan of MSI. But if you have confidence in the brand, I say go for it.
  3. You want 2x4 GB of RAM, not 4x2.
  4. oh good thinking, i missed that, thank you!

    Asrock is out selling MSI atm in regards to motherboards, and that board not only will o/c better than that MSI board, it's set up with the new PCI-E 3.0 slots that Ivy Bridge will support.

    So why not?
