as for a mobo i would suggest this one. for a gaming rig you do not need to spend a ton on a motherboard unless you are planning on really pushing your OC

I'd never go off newegg reviews alone. I don't know what kind of heat that ram produces, OP may have to add a cooler in addition which is more cost. Already suggested the ASRock mobo, it was the other brand I considered along with ASUS, but I like the features ASUS has more. I don't know why the Sabertooth is so popular considering it's a huge plastic cover over everything. To each their own though. biggrin.gif

that ram is built on the 30nm process which is the only ram that is (everything else is built on the 40nm process) which means that it produces significantly less heat and uses much less power to achieve the same speeds. do a quick search on this forum for that ram and see what kind of results you get and you might be surprised. and with 124 five star reviews and no 1 star reviews i think you can be pretty confident

Again I don't really consider newegg rating system as reviews. The only advantage I can see is if I were looking for cheap low profile memory that doesn't get in the way of a rather large aftermarket CPU cooler like a CM V6 GT or Noctua nh-d14 where other ram like Corsair Vengeance would get in the way using all 4 slots (unless you buy the low profile of that). I'll keep my eye on that ram though, little concerning it can run on 1.35v as most is 1.5 or 1.65 for 1600+ speeds. Would probaly be great in a server or HTPC build.

Even for SLI/Crossfire a 650W PSU is fine.

The Sabertooth Z77 is very overpriced, I would look at the Gigabyte Z77X-D3H or the bit more expensive UD3H they're both brillant mobos sold for a great price.

Agility 3 SSD uses asynchronous NAND and thus a inferior performance, I would look at the Plextor M5S instead which is a top-tier SSD.

WD Red HDD are also overpriced and they are 5400RPMs... checkout the Caviar Blue WD10EZEX its their fastest consumer drive at the moment (faster than the Blacks! thumb.gif).
