Your motherboard is good. But it docent support ddr3-1866 ram, here is good ddr3-1600 ram, which is the max of the mobo, and its only $55. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . The graphics card is awesome. Your case has 2 fans which is not alot, also it only has a 10.5 inch clearance for graphics cards and your graphics card is about 10.5 inches. The Antec 300 illusion is a much better case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . Your PSU is fine but its outputting more power than your going to use. Also 256 gb of space is not alot, maby you could buy a cheaper ssd for your os http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ( http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-recommendation-... ), and buy a hard drive for storage http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and if you do buy both your going to need to get another Sata cable. Lastly do you have a os your going to use? Share arzbhatia September 2, 2012 4:42:46 PM Everything is GREAT! Get the G.Skill RipJaws X 8GB 1600Mhz. It's the best RAM I've ever tested. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Laziirz September 2, 2012 7:09:21 PM Best answer selected by Laziirz. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
