More about building
  1. If you even think about SLI/CFing in the future, get the Z77 ASRock Extreme4 Gen3 Motherboard. Get the 6870. It is faster than the 560 non ti and cheaper.
  2. Will that motherboard be able to run with all these parts? Would hate it for me to return some parts on my first gaming pc build.
  3. As long as both are ATX, yes it will.
  4. ok i might take your advice on the MOBO. Any other suggestions? I want to be able to have a clear idea before i order.
  5. Ok Here is what I have so far.

  7. Will that Processor come with a heatsink? Or does the heatsink that comes with it suck?

    Yes it will.
  9. do u suggest i use the heatsink and thermal from the processor or just use the heatsink u suggested.

    If you don't plan on over clocking then the stock Intel heat sink will work fine. If and when you feel like giving over clocking a go then just order than CM 212 EVO. It comes with decent thermal paste and there's a second fan (Cooler Master Blade Master 120mm) for $8 that you can add to it for a "push - pull" effect to help bring cpu temps down even more.
  11. do u think u can elaborate on this push-pull effect?

    That fan in the bottom link clips on to the other side of that cooler. One fan pushes the air the other fan pulls the air.
