First question is which mobo you would choose. Other considerations are the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H and the MSI Z77A-G45. I will be overclocking, nothing extreme.
The second question I have is which memory to go with. My current build has GSkill Ripjaws. There are so many RAM options on newegg that get 5 star reviews. With the above mobo's and cpu, what should i look for specifically, or just pick any well reviewed ddr3 RAM with good speed and timings? I read in here somewhere that its a waste to get anything more than 1600 ram. Is that accurate? I was thinking these few here.
G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) - $40
G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) - $45
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - $45
