Solved

Really need some help with this build I have been working on.

Intel Core i3 Processor i3-2120 $116.99
MSI H61M-P23 (B3) $47.99
CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) $48.99 (Have)
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB $69.99(Have)
CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2 $44.99 (Have)
GAMMA Classic Series ATX Mid Tower $35.99(Have)
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB $134.99

budget is roughly 550

I've been buying parts off and on for awhile now for this build and I have run into a problem with the motherboard. I can't seem to find it on any sites because it is either out of stock or discontinued. Also I have heard it isn't the greatest motherboard either. Can someone help me find another motherboard that is compatible with the parts I have and one that is also better?

    Hi. Any B75 or H77 motherboard should do: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/motherboard/#c=26,36&sort=a6

    You can also get the i3-3220 for a similar price: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80637i33220

    You can get the GTX 650 Ti for a similar price too: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/video-card/#c=118&sort=a5
  2. would you recommend the motherboard tenaciousk picked aswell? and also is the gfx card you picked better than the one I picked?
  3. For almost the same price the 7850 is miles ahead of the 650 ti. 650 ti SHOULD be around the price of a 7770 not 7850.

    can you shoot me a link to that please?
  5. That motherboard is fine. The GTX 650 Ti is better than the HD 7770 and a few of them costs less than $135 after rebate. If your budget allows, you can get the HD 7850. I was just trying to make a minor component improvement without increasing the cost.
