I'm about to buy this system. Need one final overview.
Feb 26, 2013, 3:55 PM
My main concerns are picking a MOBO and staying below $800, preferably $750. I cant go over 800.
The parts are as follows:
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K -
GPU: XFX HD 7870 Double D -
MOBO: BIOSTAR TZ77XE3 OR MSI Z77A-G41 OR ASRock LGA1155/Intel Z75
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866
PSU: RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS
This totals to about: $670 + Peripherals + Tax - Rebates
My grand total should be no more than 750 -800.
Can someone help me pick the right MOBO?

why 1600 over 1866?
the raidmax im planning on getting has a good reputation on newegg. I feel like i can get away with it.
I didnt add a case or hard drive because im going for the cheapest i can find
