Sorry if I posted this incorrectly, but please excuse me. My son is a big gamer, and his system just crashed. I need to select a good processor, motherboard, and memory to build a good gaming computer.
He has a antec 900 case, antec 1000W, powersupply, hard drive, and windows 7 64 bit home version. I think an I-5 2500 would be a good start. Thanks again.

Thanks Jack. I took it to our local computor store and they advised the motherboard is shot. The processor is an old 8400. At this point I think it best to upgrade to the I-7 2500.

How is you board compared to the AS Rock P67 Extreme 4 Gen 3?

What memory would you suggest to go with the new build? Keep gaming in mind.

Thank you

When I check the ram you mentioned with the corsair website for compatability with the motherboard you suggested it shows that memory as 4 X 2gb . I would prefer 2 X 4gb . Either Corsair or New Egg has a misprint.

Please I need help for a good 8GB ram for the above setup.
