This is my Gaming Rig I want to know like for example, the mushkin memory if there is another memory thats better and less price than that one. etc. Like give me you opinions on it. The biggest problem on price is my graphics card, its the GeForce GTX TI 560, like whats the difference between that one and the GeForce GTX 560? Also is there another graphics card that functions the same as one of those just lower price like the Radeon 6980? or something like that? Im mostly going to be playing the new stand alone DayZ coming out Septemeber, Would the fps on this rig be good on dayz? Will the graphic settings be good? etc My budget also is $650

turn in some beer cans for the 5 cent deposit get a better PSU. something like the antec neo eco 520w or corsair CX600

you can also get the amd 7850 for $250, its a better card then the GTX560ti

If your Pc is to be used for gaming primarily then the single most important part is the video card and the most video card that you can get within your budget is a priority.

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-3662-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
$309.99

This card is $60 more than the 560Ti that you have listed but it will absolutly blow away the 560Ti and the 7850. You can make up the extra cost from other components.

You can get 8 gb of ram for less than $50 and you don't need DDR3 2000 , you can be fine with DDR3 1600.

your MB does not support over clocking only the Z77/Z68/P68 support this. your CPU is a "K" series which can be over clocked.
get a "Z" series MB or save some money and get a non "K" CPU
suggest this MB

that PSU will probably smoke your rig. its cheap garbage.
Buy a Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone, Antec, XFX, PC Power and Cooling. 500-600W will do

Mushkin Ram is ok, but I prefer G.Skill

at its price point ($220-280) for performance the HD 7850 is "The" card right now. the GTX 660ti is at a premium ($300) it will be a while before they drop, unless AMD drops the price on the 7870 (the Direct competition)

I prefer Sapphire for AMD based cards and EVGA for nVidia

you cant overclock your RAM(ram will work@1600 by defulat with ivy bridge CPUs) or cpu with this motherboard so you need z77 or p67(need flash bios to support IVB cpus).so i suggest if you dont want to buy Z77 mobo save the extra money and buy i5-3550 which it allow you to overclock it 400mhz,and 2x4gb 1600 RAM
