The choice of the motherboard is becuase I'm using a gtx 580 from MSI and its pci 2.0 and the motherboard is the same.
Now the only other problem I have is how do I figure out if my RAM is compatible with all of this? ATM I have some Kingston Value Ram but unsure how the find the specifications, I tried before and where I bought my pc form was not very specific and I can't find anything on the internet either.
Also just wondering of all these are compatible and if I need a cpu cooler ? Since im not planning on overclocking one but have a igmatek Loki SD-S963 and wondering if that would work with the above combo.
Lastly, should I be getting thermal paste with the CPU supplier or will I need to provide my own?
For about the same price as your selected motherboard, you could have a more up to date and full featured motherboard. It's still compatible with your CPU and graphics card choices, but also leaves you an upgrade path, unlike your original selection.
