  1. ASRock Z68 Extreme3, $125.
    I think it would be worth it to get a better monitor. What's the use of getting all this beastly hardware if all you get out of it is a tiny little screen?
    Skip the OCZ SSDs. Go ADATA, Crucial, Mushkin or Smasung for better reliability.
    You probably don't need more than 8gb RAM.
  2. Shut it with ur asrock junk. Go with asus don't listen to asrock fanboy swarm
  3. You might want to explain yourself there madchemist. How are we supposed to know you're right without some proof?
  4. Hehe. Should be reading all my other posts. Check hardocp for similar mobo reviews.
  5. Thanks all, any ideas on a good case I was looking to add a
    COOLER MASTER V6 GT RR-V6GT-22PK-R1 120mm DynaLoop CPU Cooler w/ Universal bracket & Dual Fan

    And it looks fairly large so I want to make sure it will fit.
  6. Case fractal design arc midi
