I completely agree with the 7850 and RAM suggestion, but I would not grab the Z77 board, the Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 should perform about the same. wink.gif

Sticking with one site ensures the parts will arrive on time.

Terrible reasoning, just order your parts earlier and expect them to come in a week. You will get a much better system by ordering from multiple sites.

Any reason why the Asrock is better than the asus?
Also, What are the benefits for getting the 7850 over the GTX 560 ti?

for the price it is giving you alot better features and performance the Asus Motherboard you have looking at is a LX version and can not be overclocked its VRMs are not cooled and i guess it does not even support CF/SLi it would be better if you go with ASRock and anyways its a part on Asus so no worries wink.gif
