I'm about to buy this system. Need one final overview.

Hey guys.

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 - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2373004&sku=I69-3570K

GPU: XFX HD 7870 Double D - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2318242&sku=P450-7871

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?

More about system final overview
  1. for ram pick 1600mhz
    for mobo go with asrock but z77 chipset
    raidmax psu's are *** get better brand one such as corsair or asus
    no case and hard drive? lol
  2. 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
  3. because you wont notice the 1-5% performance increase for paying extra
    raidmax cases are cheap
