  1. get a better motherboard,8GB ram is plenty for gaming and daily stuff,TX750 V2 is enough for your build(with overclocking and SLi)
  2. What motherboard would you suggest?
  3. Best answer
    1: id get a z77x-ud3h motherboard if you are on a lower budget. its 129.99. otherwise, id get a z77-v pro motherboard from asus. they sell for 190 i think at amazon
    2:get a better cooler like the noctua nh-d14. if you cant afford it, get the hyper 212 evo from coolermaster
    3:id get a samsung 830 128gb given its around the same price of 96 dollars at B&H
    4:i personally use seagate since they are cheaper
    5:get a msi power edition gtx670 instead. it has a way better cooler and has overvolting support that no other 670 has (software overvolting). its not really worth getting a 680 given a 670 performs super close and the price difference is overboard. he msi 670 costs 399.99 at check though
    6:the c70 has pretty bad airflow from what i heard. you are better off with a fractal define r4 window (costs less than with window) or a corsair 500R
    7:you dont need a psu that is that efficient. id get something like a xfx xxx 750w for 111 dollars at amazon. its made by seasonic so you get the same quality levels
    8: you only need 8gb of ram. id get crucial ballistix sport 1600mhz cl9 or gskill ares 1600mhz cl9 2x4gb. pick the one that is cheaper. they perform the same
