actually I'm trying to upgrade my PC and I have chosen to buy mobo, cpu, RAM and VGA card.
For VGA I think of asus gt640-2gd3.
Now for the rest, i'm a little bit confused. As a first priority: i5 or i7 LGA1155 or i7 LGA2011? Then, for motherboards, there is a really wide variety (except for LGA 2011), so that you get lost. I just want a decent mobo (Asus preferrably). And the latest is the RAM. For minimum, I'd take 8-12 GB, but depending on the price of the rest of the parts even 16GB could be fine.
