As of currently, I have no plans on overclocking at all; I'll probably buy the components a long time from now, if I ever want to. Altogether, this set costs about $1,350 with tax added(15%) and not counting discounts. I can only afford up to around $1450. No more than that. Thanks.
Quick question: Is the motherboard okay? Really, all I'm looking for is a cheap cheap motherboard that's able to be compatible with all of my other components and to pass the bare minimum.
Processor: i5-3570 <-- if you can find 3470 cheaper, go with it instead
Motherboard: Asus P8B75-M LX Intel B75 mATX --> please find normal ATX mobo at similar price, not mATX (micro atx). it can be B75/H77 but with ATX size
RAM: STRONTIUM 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 ---> look for corsair/gskill/patriot/crucial brand RAM as it will ensure quality. i think the price is similar
