MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I guess my main concerns are: Are all these things compatible? Also, is this MOBO good enough? Thanks! More about : 800 gaming build ScrewySqrl February 19, 2012 12:21:21 PM your parts will generally work together. Its probably worth the slight increase to get an i5-2500K instead of the 2500. for the same price as your DDR3-1333 ram, you can get DDR3-1600 RAM (Patriot) I don't see a case. your mobo is one of the best. diec4st February 19, 2012 12:46:51 PM Like the previous guy said, since you are getting a Z68 MOBO, get the 2500k as you may want to overclock in the future. Also get 1600 ram because it's gerenally the same price. I would either go with : That board + 2500k or if you really dont want to overclock a cheapo H67 / H61 board with a 2400 or 2500 Good luck 6870 is a great card for the price good choice there.
