Solved Upgrading/Fixing Computer Tags: Homebuilt Computers Systems Product Last response: February 20, 2013 1:22 PM in Systems Share hiddenmonk430 February 20, 2013 12:27:09 PM My computer died about a year ago and I'm about to fix/upgrade it. I would like to know if what I picked out would work together and I'm looking for suggestions. My price range is about $400-$450. Mobo - ASRock Z77 Pro4 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... CPU - Core i5-3570K http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I use it for gaming. If there's any suggestions for a better set within my price range please let me know. I'm hoping to order the parts soon. Please do not ask about any other components as I either already made sure they will work (Power Supply etc) or do not have the money to upgrade it atm.
