I am finally upgrading from my old q9450 OC to 3GHZ to a brand new IVY Bridge cpu. I need help deciding on a motherboard and ram because i have no clue which one to get. I also want general opinions on the build so far. My budget for a MOBO around 200$, i do not want to spend more than 300$, and for ram I do no want to spend more than 200$.

The build I am planning:

CPU
: IVY core i7-3770k
Cooler: CM hyper 212---- which is used on my q9450
MOBO: ?
RAM: I want 12GB?

Hard Drive: Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 240 GB

i have two other drives for my STEAM GAMES and another for media. The SSD will be used for boot and maybe so pc games as well.

GPU: 570GTX- ----already have it in the old system
PSU: Antec 700w-already have it in the old system
Case:CM STORM-already have it in the old system
Sound Card: Creative Fatality Titanium HD---already have it in the old system
OS: Windows 7 64 bit-already have it
Monitor: 22in acer-already have it




I would like input if the SSD, i read that it is the fastest out right now on TOMS-HARDWARE and it is fairly cheap.

I use my pc for gaming, rendering and photoshop.
