You can go with a H77 instead to save some money. Also, I would invest in a better power supply, one from Antec, Corsair, or Seasonic. JakeEng November 21, 2012 10:01:12 PM I want to get a Z77 because Ive got the option to crossfire later Related resources Rate my budget gaming build - Forum Rate my build .

Get the answer Deemo13 November 21, 2012 10:03:53 PM You can get a ASRock H77 Pro4 with the option of CFX later. Also, if you want to Crossfire later definitely get a better power supply. A good 750W should do just fine. JakeEng November 21, 2012 10:09:35 PM Sorry should explain im getting one custom built online and the H77 chips they do are all ATX motherboards, could the ATX and replace it later if i do decide to crossfire? Deemo13 November 21, 2012 10:23:22 PM Personally, I would build one myself. I don't understand your last statement though. JakeEng November 21, 2012 10:25:47 PM Well the difference is only 50 so i would rather take away the hassle, and sorry it was meant to say they are all micro ATX cases Deemo13 November 21, 2012 10:30:15 PM Oh. Well, I'm just saying you can save a bundle and have an awesome sense of accomplishment. Also, you can determine the upgrade path and don't have to hassle with a shoddy warranty service.

A good 750W should do just fine. You CANNOT crossfire on a motherboard with an H77 chip set . You can crossfire X , where the second card is in a slot with x4 bandwidth . Performance would take a serious hit The OP should buy a Z77 chip set motherboard He should also check that the RAM he has selected is rated for 1.5 volt operation I wouldnt be a fan of the CM power supply either , but the spec's seem OK ... if the'yre telling the truth this time Deemo13 November 21, 2012 11:06:50 PM ^Wasn't aware of that. Thanks for pointing that out! I'm just saying though if he wants to CF, then he should go for a larger power supply. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumRate my Build !
