  1. If you want 12 GB of RAM, which is overkill, go 2x6. I recommend just 2x4 because you won't need more than 8 gb of RAM. As far as movies go, MSI and Asus are awesome. An Asus or MSI 68 or 77 series should do I.
  2. 12 is an odd number too especially for dual channel cpus. I'd recommend either 8 or if you really need it 16 (4x4).
    As it turns out there is no lga 1155 mobo on the market that even has 6 ram slots...4 is the max

    Asrock, asus, gigabyte all make good mobos, just make sure you get a z68 chipset and all the features you need/want.
  3. Hi there, if u are editing video or do a 3D, get 16GB 4x4GB RAM

    But if u are only i the gaming,

    get 8GB RAM 2x4GB sticks.

    To use more than 4GB, u need x64 bit windows, which u have : )
  4. Best answer
    I recommend CORSAIR Vengeance 99% of the time, quality RAM and low profile with XMP profile. And if u will get an aftermarket CPU cooler, low profile is the worry free remedy with perfect fit with any large cooler.
    CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233196
    Vengeance Low Profile heat spreaders have a reduced height of 1.03" (26.25mm). They're designed for high-performance systems with extra-large CPU coolers, small form factor system builds, or any other space-constrained application where standard Vengeance memory might not fit.
  5. Or,


    CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233198
    Vengeance Low Profile heat spreaders have a reduced height of 1.03" (26.25mm). They're designed for high-performance systems with extra-large CPU coolers, small form factor system builds, or any other space-constrained application where standard Vengeance memory might not fit.
  6. I would get this PSU with 5years of warranty @ $49.99 after mail-in rebate card

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028
  7. Plus you get $10 off after code:EMCNDNC53
    $40 is a nice deal
  8. This would be a decent addition to your set up.

    LGA 1155
    Intel Z77
    4×240pin DDR3 2400(O.C.)/2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333

  9. And if u will save some $$ on the PSU and cooler, than this one is just great deal.

    1) you can get a better GPU for the same or less. That gpu is overpriced imo. I'd gun for an HD 7850.
    2) you dont need more than 4 gigs but 8 (2 x 4) is recommended.
    3) I'd stick with an 2500k and z68 mobo
    4) You could drop the SSD and the CPU cooler to max out your GPU. You can add them later and they will give less to your in game experiences than a better GPU.
