More about : compatibility check manofchalk July 12, 2012 12:39:32 PM Yep, its all good. Just some general comments on the build. Overkill power supply. Get a 600W for single GPU, 750W for dual. Sandy Bridge and Z77 are compatible, but not optimized for each other. Get either 3570k or a Z68 board (preferably the 3570k). m 0 l TheBigTroll July 12, 2012 12:54:17 PM corsair ram is a no no if you plan to install a heatsink. get gskill ripjaws or mushkin blackline ram instead. also, id get a p8z77-v LK board instead since asrock from what i heard was cheaping out on power delivery caps m 0 l Related resources Building gaming PC.

Since you´ve got the 2500K, then get yourself a Z68 board. m 0 l Best solution TheBigTroll July 12, 2012 3:45:29 PM DECL4N said:Already purchased the 2500k just down to personal opinion and what 750w power supply would you recommend modular if possible for £85 or lower? the xfx xxx 750w is around 96 pounds but it is more efficent and quieter than the standard 80+bronze. heres the link http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA... theres virtually no diference between the z68 and z77 chipsets other than the z68 is a bit older. either one works and is just as good. id go with z77 as the manufacturers tend to add more new features that the last generation didnt have Share DECL4N July 12, 2012 5:20:23 PM Best answer selected by DECL4N. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
