More about first build opinions suggestions
  1. I would change 2 things.


    U can definitely use this one -> ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 -> ... Latest Z77...

    I just build PC with this mobo and I like the BIOS, its looks like this.

    Works as expected @ 4.4GHz



    That is a great mobo choice for the CPU. It has good power design for OC.

  8. Asrock Z77-EXTREME4-M Z77 - its the shorter version of the one that I recommended.

    Its not the same one.
  9. link goes to umarts main page not the motherboard
  10. Ok so now this will be my final build, everything is compatible? and of high quality?

  11. Why these 2? Get only 1 of them.

    Or is there any special reason for that?

    G SKill 8G(2x4G)DDR3 1866Mhz PC3-14900(F3-14900CL9D-8GBXL)
    G SKill 4G(2x2G)DDR3 1600Mhz PC3-12800(F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL)
  12. that was my next question if only really gaming and browsing is it essential to get 12gbs of ram instead of 8?
  13. From those speakers don't expect much, if planned to play them loud.

    Y need to use 1 same RAM. Or it will not work in dual channel, but in single one.

    Its not good to mix different RAM : )

    U should have 8GB or 16GB. 8GB is fine for games, as they don't take advantage of more RAM yet.

    16GB is great for video and other editing. Or RAM disc use.
