ASrock extreme4 comes with Ram so no need to buy any

HDD- get seagate barracuda 1TB or WD caviar blue

GPU - i will suggest a 7870 since it is at a great price point if you want to upgrade it make it into a 7970 since it will perform better than a 7970

I would recommend the XFX 7870 DD edition. (what im currently using) The card runs really quiet even while under load gaming. Has run every game iv thrown at it on max settings with FPS still through the roof and never dropping below 60.

This card was an awesome addition to my build and i highly urge you to get this card.
(And it looks good if you got a window in your case :p )

Is that psu bad? for the money i think is good, semi modular and made by seasonic

And where says that the asrosck extreme4 comes with ram? and don't see that.

It was a offer at newegg, which they are already sold out on.
October 24, 2012 4:39:19 AM

Well in amazon is still in that price(that is where i will buy everything), at the momento of the buy is still in that price i will buy, if not i will buy a corsair tx or a xfx pro or another good one a good price.

I cannot find where say that the extreme4 have ram o.o

Like i said they don't have that offer anymore. I recommend a Corsair hx power supply however it may be out of budget? the tx's are good too. Never been a fan of xfx's psu's however.

Are the offers in amazon the same that in newegg? i am confused.

October 24, 2012 10:13:58 PM

The offer WAS on newegg... The offer is OVER you will not get it anymore so don't even worry about it it won't happen. You'll just have to buy the ram seperatly.
