  1. Looks like a beast.

    You didn't read the sticky, did you?
  2. Looks fine to me as long as the RAM is of the right type.

    Should perform adequately for every game out there.

    The RAM should work fine.

    Most people, when checking RAM compatibility, take the following steps:
    1. Go to the manufacturer's support page for your mobo (google the make & model of mobo)
    2. Look for a list of Tested Memory or Qualified Vendor List or QVL
    3. Look for your RAM on the list.
  6. Is this for gaming?

    I would get at least a 6870.
  7. If you aren't OCing things, I would stick with 1333 RAM.

    If you will be using Windows 7, then 2x 4GB is ideal, but if you will be staying with XP then don't get above 2 x 2GBs.
  8. Im not a hard core gamer though just mmorpg mostly but i still want a decent pc

    This mobo might be better if you want to upgrade in the future
  10. oh, you already bought the 6850.. It's still good.

    Yeaaa I just bought it. Its on it way to my house lol. So for now all I need is a mobo and CPU
  12. From everything I have read, the difference between 1333 RAM and 1600 RAM when not OCing is usually pretty small, and whereas 1333 almost never has configuration problems the 1600 does often.
  13. Yea i got 8GB ram right now so i prob dont even need to buy ram just because 8Gb is more than enough. I just wonder is there a huge diffrence between i5 1st gen anf the i5 2500k
  14. Get the 2500k, not the 2500. It is barely more expensive and is potentially usable a lot longer.
  15. I have the i5 2500 right now and i dont want to buy the i5 2500k cuz i dont want to waste my old i5 uk wat i mean thats y im asking :D
  16. If you already got the 2500 then don't buy the K version unless you want to just give me the old 2500 that is going to waste, then by all means get the K. If you aren't going to give the old one to me then its pretty much just a waste.
