I need help choosing a motherboard and ram. These parts are at $570, so we have another $180 for a mobo and ram.
My client currently has a 460w Coolermaster CPU, that would be enough to run a single card right?
Also, I am aware that this build is probably a little overkill for the resolution, but my client wants the flexibility to be able to switch to a higher resolution if he chooses to and also wanted something powerful enough to game on his current resolution for a while yet.
Anyways, any help with which motherboard/ram to go with would be much appreciated.
RAMs on the Giga-Byte QVL: G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL 8GB (2x4GB), Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) & Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3T1K2/8GX (2x4GB)
You have a 98% chance of unlocking (via a simple mod) the Sapphire Radeon HD6950 Toxic to an HD6970 -- and you also have a good chance of unlocking the 960T BE Zosma to a six-core (if you were so inclined).
