    should do the trick
  5. If you're doing the Pentium G860 route, the Radeon 7850 paired with an H77 motherboard will be a much faster system than a Phenom II 965 will.
  6. yes except he cant fit that in the budget with windows.
  7. The h77 is oc only right I can go over depends on things really like game wise what would be the difference between the 2
  8. h77 cant overclock only z77 and z68 and p67 can
  9. Your build seems fine, you can lower the motherboard for a h61, if you need to lower the price down, but the b75 has better features.
    The only thing i see bad is the gpu, i'd get a 7850, the 650 ti at 160$(before mir) is way to much expensive.
    The 7850 will give a better performance in gaming, and it comes now with two games free, the BioShock Infinite and Tomb raider.
    With both, it totals over 100$ value for free.
    Here's a cheap 7850 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161426

    B75 is pretty sweet I just bought one. CF USB3

    An H77 motherboard is only like $15 more than the B75 and you're not stuck with parallel and serial ports that you'll never use.
  15. also i find the h77 plateform has a few accessories the b75 doesnt have.
  16. so something like this
