I would like to be able to play games on high to maxed out settings. Please could you tell me if this is all compatible and will work well together, and if I will be able to play games maxed out with high fps.

BTW- I wont be playing BF3. I will be playing skyrim and other games but no bf3.

Thanks :hello:

Looks like a solid build. However, if you are planning to overclock, you must get either P67, Z68, or Z77, as h61 is disabled for overclocking. I would recommend going for the Z77, in case you may want to upgrade to Ivy Bridge in the future, or use native USB 3.0. Here is a great Z77 mobo IMO:

May I add, What about the optical drive and HDD?

Can you list the older case you currently have? The CM 212 is a great cooler but is large and only fits in some cases so that could be an issue.

Also, like previous guy. You still need a HDD and optical drive.

EVGA Superclocked GTX 570: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

EDIT: Honestly though, the drivers are probably fine. Most people don't have any issues.

Also, this is the best/cheapest motherboard you can get for overclocking: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
or if you really wanna go cheap: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
