  1. is that 2x8gb ram for 16gb total? if so, go with half the ram so 2x4gb for 8gb total and spend the savings on a 3570k.

    - thanky you for the quick reply! its a 2x4gb for a total of 8gb ram. is an asrock z77 extreme 6 a good board?
  3. I don't personally know, but i do know that the z77 is a good chipset (but is kind of a waste if you don't have an unlocked processor to go in there, like the 3570k). ASRock is a well respected brand as well.

    If you can can try to get a 3570k it would do better but overall the i5 3300 would be ok.
