I realize that I went over budget by $11... but I can live with that. Is there anything that sticks out as wrong in this build? Or that you would personally change? Important notes include that I live in Canada and therefore it has to be able to ship there, and that the main uses of this build are gaming and school work. Also, I will NOT be doing any overclocking, or using Crossfire/SLI. Any help would be much appreciated!
I have two questions. One is about the motherboard. I know very little about motherboards. All I really know is since I'm not overclocking, to stick with an H77 motherboard. That's pretty much the extent of my knowledge. My question is, is this a decent motherboard to go with for this build?
My other question is about RAM. I really know nothing about this either. I would like to go with 2x4GB ram, but as for the different kinds and brands I am pretty clueless. Do they really make any significant difference in the end? Is the type of RAM I have selected okay?
