MOTHERBOARDS (unsure on which I want/open to suggestions under $170) -

http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=76030&vpn=M5A99XEVOR2%2E0&manufacture=ASUS&promoid=1360

Are these decent choices for the Motherboard? Which one would be the best for me?

Comments, insults appreciated smile.gif

I personally don't recommend going cheap on parts in the present with the intent of replacing them in the near future.

This video from Linus provides really good insight on how to plan a build / purchase.

Get this XFX power supply instead as its a better unit.

You can get a 7950 for about $50 less than a GTX760 and have the same performance.

Id opt for the 8320 to save you a few bucks since theyre going for $145 right now shipped. Take that $55 and put it together with the $35 you were gonna spend on the Hyper 212+ and get this Noctua D14 for $91 instead (assuming itll fit that case youve selected). If you dont want that, then get a Corsair H80i for the same price. The Noctua will do a little better job at cooling but the H80i will take up a lot less space in your case.

For motherboards, you should pick something as beefy as you can because if youre gonna upgrade parts later, you wont have to worry about installing a new motherboard and then reinstalling Windows and all that crap. Something like this Gigabyte 990FX-UD5 for $168 would be a good choice under $170. Asus is my favorite brand of motherboard and Id recommend the Sabertooth but its $190. If you dont want to spend the extra $20, that Gigabyte will be just fine. Its a very good motherboard.

650 watts is overkill for a GTX 760 a 450 watts could power it

This is great advice^^^

The 8320 is not bad at all and will OC right there with the 8350, the better cooler and better MoBo idea is what I would recommend as well.
