I'm building my first PC and I need help selecting a motherboard. I'm trying to save as much as possible and my first choice for my mobo was a Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H ATX Motherboard and my second choice is a Fatal1ty Z77 Professional-M.
Now whats better? I'm planning on overclocking my processor.
Processor: Intel i5-3570K
GPU: ASUS GTX670
PSU: Corsair HX750v2 ATX Power Supply Unit
RAM: G.Skill Sniper 8G Kit(4Gx2) *is 8GB enough or do I need to make it 16GB?
CPU cooler: Thermaltake FRIO Universal CPU Cooler Fan
HDD: Seagate 3.5" Barracuda 1TB
Optical Drive: LiteOn Internal SATA Dual Layer DVD RW IHAS524
Your power supply is more then enough and 8 gb of ram is fine for gaming for your Motherboard - Gigabyte Z77X-D3H
Ever since Intel’s introduction of the Z77 chipset, motherboard giant Gigabyte has made huge leaps in in improvements on their motherboards all the way from the budget end to the extreme high end and the Z77X-D3H is a perfect example of what kind of top quality products can be achieved.
With support for PCIe 3.0, SATA 3 6Gb/s, 8 channel integrated audio, Gigabyte’s fully digital power delivery system, and ultra durable 4 features, it’s got a lot going for it.
That said, either one will do but personally i wouldn't buy Fatal1ty Z77 Professional-M.
