Hi everyone! I really find your community very helpful and nice so I was wondering if you guys could help me out building my new gamer desktop computer hehe. So lets see, what I'm looking to get is:

- Intel i7-3770K LGA 1155 (in this aspect i don't actually think i need overclocking, but any suggestions are welcome)
- Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650
- Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800)

So what I need now is some advice on what motherboard should I get, it doesn't have to be any kind of great aspect neither I'm interested in the colors, just a nice one that is good for the price.
Also I don't have the case yet so any suggestions on that area would be appreciated too, and finally, do I need to chance my power supply? and would it work with my current hard drive, it being a 500 GB Sata disk?

Thanks in advance guys! And a happy new year to you all :) !

Are you going to use this for gaming? If so get I5 3570K and 2x 4GB ram and a stronger GPU like HD7950/70 or GTX670.

Your board will support dual channel so 2x4GB is the way to go since 8GB is plenty for gaming. I would get the cheaper card since even with higher clocks the other one is not going to be that much faster.
