So I'm looking to upgrade my gaming rig, and need some help choosing between parts. I'm hoping to play games at max settings, and the only thing I use my computer for other than gaming is school work. No editing or stuff like that. Will overclock if I run into a game that won't run great without it, but not a major concern. I already have a case from my current pc, optical drive, OS, mouse, keyboard, and monitor (1920x1080).
Comes with 8GB of free RAM, which is really cool. Not many reviews though and can't find on pc part picker to check compatibility. Will it be able to handle everything? If not, what MOBO would be better?
I'm helping my buddy build his new computer this week, and it really gave me the itch to build for myself. I just don't know too much about motherboards, and would like some feed back from more experienced builders regarding that and my PSU. Any replies are appreciated.
