  1. definitely get the 2gb, you don't need a z77 chipset with that cpu as ts not unlocked for overclocking so you can get a cheaper motherboard
  2. What psu were you looking at? I would get the 2 GB 7850. You can get an H77 mobo instead since you won't be overclocking.

    you mean that z77 wont overlock and this is not good for gaming.

    he means that the i3 cannot be overclock hence you don't need to buy the z77. stick to the h77 if you are not planning to buy an unlocked/"K" series i5 or i7.
  6. no, what keizz meant was you need a k series cpu to properly utilize a z77 mobo
  7. and to answer your question, if they are really in the same price bracket then go with the 2GB one, you'll never know when you'll need that extra mfb.

    i will upgrade to K SERIES CHIP after 2 to 3 months.
  9. not sure whether i3 can do ultra settings, but you are upgrading to k soon anyway, so no worries.

    pick the z77 if you are really planning to overclock, otherwise stick to the h77 and a non "K" i5/i7 series if you won't.
  11. If you are upgrading to a 'k' series i suggest forgoing the descrete gpu and use the cpu's graphics. This will allow you to have a better end result and you can still play your games (albiet at low settings) while you wait. It will be worth it in the end. I suggest
