  1. also
    ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  2. Its a good build...
    Which GPU r u planning on??
  3. Yea, I mean looks good to me, will run anything you want effectively. What GPU are you going to be getting? Make sure thats where your putting the bulk of the budget into CPU+GPU.
  4. planning on getting a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1 GB GDDR5
  5. 560 Ti is nice, ive had one for a few months now, ive had no problems. I run BF3 on all high settings with no issues... i just want something more powerful

    I r regret not getting the GTX 480 as it performs better and was cheaper
  6. Why not get a 7850? They're better than the 560 TI and not much more expensive.

    $224 after Mail in rebate

    7850s also have massive overclocking potential, its not unheard of for them to be OC'd as much as 40 percent.

    This is a single GPU setup ( can OC the CPU ) only 750 GB HDD !!! You can add 20 bucks to the build and get a 1TB

    Or if its pushing your to tight get this build and replace the GTX 670 for the 7850 and save 150 bucks and add your 1 TB HDD

    Hope this helps GL with your build M8
