    The parts chosen already are top notch. Its nice to see a new builder who doesn't try to cheap out on the PSU.

    as for ram, something like this would do you:

    motherboard really comes down to the features you want. but a decent gigabyte or asus board on the z68 chipset that fits your budget will do very well.
  2. Try the Asus P8Z68 V-LE, also get the 7850.
  3. Ok so after some research (not a lot) im picking G.Skill Rip Jaws 2x4 GB DDR3 1600MHz.

    Im still confused for the mobo.With the other parts i think ill be able to spare out $150 for mobo.Im not looking for any much fancy stuff on my mobo,just 2 pcie slots,supporting usb 3.0,having decent overclocking ability,and thats it.

    Thanks for the support
