Hi All,

Been a while since I build my own computer. Just wanted to check and see if everything is compatable and works with everything else I bought! Loved this site for years but this is my first time posting so thanks in advance!

Corsair Carbide Series 400R Gaming Case

MSI P67A-GD55 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

HIS IceQ X Turbo H695QNT2G2M Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16

OCZ ZS Series OCZ-ZS750W 750W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready

Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core

Crucial Ballistix sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

LG DVD Burner Black SATA Model GH24LS70 LightScribe Support

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM

I wanted to get a motherboard that had both channels as 16x for Crossfire support in the future. Also I have no desire to overclock hence the 2500.

Do you have a storage drive? A HDD?

But i mean other than that i think it all works out. Wait for more input though i say.

Thanks for the feedback! No storage drive needed. Don't have much data and all else is in the cloud.

Buy a z68 than a p67 since it has Rapid Storage Technology (SSD Caching). Meaning faster boot times

This would fit your needs ^_^. It's even Toms Hardware recommended lol.

I didn't see that 16x dual channels.

This would be it anyway.

Anyway, it would better if you just bought a i5-2500k than going for crossfire. The i5-2500k is so easy to OC that it can be done with a click of a mouse lol. Dual GPU setups aren't as reliable as single setup.

From what I am reading I don't think I need a Z68 board if I am running a SSD only system, no?
