  1. Get the i5 3450 instead. (you wont notice a difference.)
    And the Asrock H77M or Pro4/MVP.
    Lastly, that RAM will void your warranty because of high voltage. You want the Corsair Vengenace or G.Skill Ares sticks.
  2. the asrok motherboard are realy needed? becuase the store im buying from dont sell these motherboards.
  3. Well, its a bigger motherboard but if its not available check out the Asus P8H77 series and find a mobo which suits your needs. I know little about the P8H77 series, sorry.
