Hi guys, this is my first build. I have already picked up my other parts, but I don't know much about motherboards.

Here is my build:

Note: I won't be doing any overclocking, but I am open to the possibility of CrossFire, unless it adds too much cost.

Is this a good motherboard, and is everything (RAM, GPU, etc.) compatible?:

If it isn't, do you guys have any recommendations? I would like it to be around the same price.


EDIT: I just realized that the case I have doesn't have an onboard USB 3.0 header. I don't need USB 3.0, so recommendations on a motherboard around the same price without USB 3.0?

Thats a perfect match. Nothing to suggest. You motherboard is good for you with crossfire support. You can do crossfire later on your mobo.

Every mobo comes with USB 3.0. There is no mobo without USB 3.0. Whatever, your hardware combination is perfect and well match. Have a blast with it :)

Are you sure? On pcpartpicker it says my case is incompatible

"ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP ATX LGA1155 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Cooler Master Storm Scout ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports."

Is that wrong? Or can that simply be fixed by choosing another case?
