Motherboard/graphics card suggestions?

Hello,

I'm going to get the Z77 motherboard for the 3770k i7 when it's available. However, since they are fairly new, they are not many reviews on all of the Z77s, is there any manufacturer/model that stands out from the rest?

Same thing for the Radeon HD 6950, anything in particular I should be looking for? I was looking at this:

However, it seems people are saying that it runs hot...

  1. The 7850 is actually better than the 6950!

    As for Z77, ASUS P8Z77 and ASRock Extreme4/6 are all pretty good. (Do you need the 3770k?)
  2. Wow, and the 7850 is even cheaper. Spectacular, thanks!

    Yeah, I've determined I want a 3770k... after much researching and other peoples' opinions..

    Now, as far as physical space.. will these all work together?
  3. What do you mean? The only space constraint piece in a pc is a big CPU cooler, and that all depends on the case!
  4. Sorry, I'm sort of a newbie at this. I think I should be fine though, this is the case I think I am using:

    Also, any recommendations on memory? I want at least 4GB. 6GB (or more obviously) would be nicer though.
    And I was going to use this 650W power supply.. do you think this will suffice?
