Solved

New build, advice please?

Hey everyone, I mostly took this build from someone else on here and changed a few things, I'm looking mostly for compatibility issues or any flaws. Thanks!

Approximate Purchase Date: Could order tonight, can wait a month or so if better things are coming up

Budget Range: $2000ish, would prefer under 2k if possible

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming almost exclusively

Parts Not Required: Speakers, mouse

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: www.newegg.com

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: by brand or type: No real preference

Overclocking: Not planned, may expirement with

SLI or Crossfire: Yes

Monitor Resolution: No real preference.. I'm used to 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I know this is missing a CPU, I'm buying an intel core i5 2500k from Microcenter, don't consider the CPU in the budget. Total price on the wishlist is $1,462.88 (once again I know it's missing the CPU)

    Should see if you can get the mobo you want from microcenter or the Z68 alternative as a combo with the CPU, they were running a $50 off of the combos at least last week.

    Otherwise looks like a solid build with quality parts.

    This mobo?

  3. More like this one:
    Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3
    or this one if you want to go with the same 'deluxe' level:
    Asus P8Z68-V Deluxe/Gen3

    You still seem to be getting the $50 discount on the mobo's so check them out.
