the mATX version
ASRock H77M Motherboard

Do these parts look good? Also I was originally thinking of mATX but having bought a fairly large case i am thinking of spending a little more for full size ATX board. I'd love to hear your opinions.

Thanks.

I wouldn't call the Antec Three Hundred a particularly large case.

The advantages the H77 Pro4/MVP has over the H77M (apart from more expansion slots) are more/larger memory support (32GB vs 16GB), two more SATA 6Gb/s ports and LucidLogix Virtu MVP software being included.

Yes those parts all look good and together they make a good build.

Thanks for the reply. I have been comparing the h77m and h77 pro4.
As you've said pro version supports 32gb of ram but since i'll be only putting in 8gbs of ram should i just go with mATX format and save some cash?

Also what is the benefit of having LucidLogix Virtu MVP software?

Then should i just get 6850 and would getting 7850 be an overkill if I will be playing Diablo 3 mostly?

Personally I think I would go with the mATX board and save the money.

I'd stick with the 7850 as it will be longer before you have to upgrade and you will really be able to crank up the quality settings. The 7850 also has the advantage of lower power consumption.

Thanks for the help.

I am taking your advice and am ordering mATX h77 mobo and gigabyte 2gb 7850 cards right now :)
