Any 8gb ram that will be on sale or a good deal. Do you recommend any ram for my spec?

Also I chose r9 270x because I could get it used same price or lower than a brand new 750ti.

I would consider getting the EVGA z97 stinger from newegg right now it's $132.99 after $20 rebate and the 10% discount code: EMCPAPE44.

It's the board I've been using to overclock and I've had awesome results so far.
My only complaint is the creative sound card they used had some buggy drivers at first but the most recent update seemed to fix my audio issues with the board.

Oh and I have an r9 270x in my system, I can test some games for you since I'm satisfied with my current OC for now.

Edit: Forgot to mention it doesn't come with a WiFi adapter, so if that's something you need add ~$30 to the board for a miniPCI express WiFi card.

Yeah the 270X is a good card, I would choose that over a 750 Ti.
I haven't looked too much into that board, but from the reviews I've seen it looks to be good, I would go with that over the ASRock H97, you'll want to look at some reviews and make your decision on what you think of it or check out some alternatives.

From the table on this thread it appears to have 6 phases which should be good for overclocking.

About the ram, I couldn't really recommend you a specifc ram kit since I'm in the UK and I haven't purchased much ram lately, so I'm not really upto date on ram, however I've used Corsair XMS3 and Vengenace kits and they seem to get the job done, I'm also a big fan of the Avexir Core sticks.

However, currently in the UK at OCUK there's a Kingston HyperX 8GB (2x4GB) PC3-14900C9 1866MHz Dual Channel Kit - Black/Gold going for £59.99, If I was buying ram now I would go for these, but I don't know about what stores you have available to you.

That's a nice mobo all black and clean looking.

I really don't need wifi, I'll just plug this directly to the Ethernet port.

How much OC did you get?

I will be running a hyper 212 EVO for cooling the CPU.

On BF4 what settings and FPS do you get on a 1920x1080 reso?

If you have titanfall and gw2 please let me know thank you

Probably, I will just look on my local Craigslist for a 4gb 2x2 RAM. Then just add down the road.

This is just my extra build if any friends will come over to my place and play.

My happy 24/7 clock is 4.6ghz@1.272v Uncore 4.3Ghz and Ram 2133 10-11-11-30 http://www.overclock.net/t/1500524/intel-pentium-g3258-performance-and-owners-thread/1200_100#post_22820299

Although I've been able to boot at 5Ghz 1.5v... but it's not very stable I'll need to test it further (but that's not an OC I want to run 24/7 anyways).

I'll test GW2 now and see how that runs.

Yeah, Still doubting though. To good to be true but he sent me pictures of the r9 270x with the seal still intact.

But the problem is if the GPU got blackscreens and didn't work straight out of the box, I have no idea how to RMA it.

Sapphire requires receipt or invoice.

Have you considered a R9 270? I think it's an under clocked 270X/7870 and has one less power connector which can affect overclocking.
