I will be reusing an Antec 300. I will most likely not be OC'ing. Thanks in advance for your help!

  1. if not overclocking stay away from the cpu or just unlocked cpu's
  2. Thanks. Other than that, does everything look okay?

    You have that old school 1.65v RAM up there and you want 1.5v RAM for these 1155 boards.

  4. Cool, thanks!
  5. gskill ripjaws are good ram for the price that patriot stuff is rubbish, also your psu is a bit overkill if your not overclocking or considering crossfire a quality 500 watt will do
  6. Any one in particular you would recommend?

    the 500watt version of the antec you chose will be fine or seasonic, corsair
  8. An EA430 will be sufficient.
