Im really not to sure about ASRock? Ive usually used ASUS but i heard ASRock is owned by asus so are they good mobos?
GFX Card SAPPHIRE 11200-00-20G Radeon HD 7850 2GB $249.99
Maybe when it comes back in stock? idk not stuck on this gfx card. but if ATI i prefer sapphire if nvidia I prefer EVGA [/b][/b]
Ram Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) $49.99

Idk what monitor, psu, or hard drive to go with. I have a samsung spinpoint f3 1tb i think in my other computer and works well so i could perhaps buy another one of those.

Why_Me said:
Asus doesn't own Asrock and they are not affiliated with each other in any shape for form. With that said, Asrock does make good boards, but that board you have chosen is meant for a single card set up. If you want a board that can run dual vid cards then look at this board down below.

ok thank you ill look into some combos with that mobo.
Im not to sure about that monitor though, The size is ok but there are some reviews about a poor viewing angle
and i cannot stand that on monitors
