Mobo : GAZ77MX-D3H PRO: CORE I5 3550K GET 600 Watt PSU most important are going to use crossfire or SLI feature of those motherboard , Do you really need a "k" Processor if the answer is no , go with H77 Mobo [ almost all of em have crossfire feature /no SLI , USB 3 and stuff ]] ex- GA-H77M-D3H core i5 3550 is a decent processor Do good research on Graphic card . I play games but i really dont need K processor like i73770K ir something like that , if you are going to install it anyway you need better cooling system , you need to replace stock cooler , http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/System-Builder-Mara... What is your budget , fill the new build for in new build section . your configuration looks like a expensive toy to me , and you are not going to utilize the full potential of this system , Buy what you need , not what you think you need kingsleym98 October 29, 2012 5:57:13 AM Sorry I forgot to add the cooler CPU Cooler : CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler Can't find your answer ?
