My System Specs


Do yourself a solid, spend a little more money and get yourself an ASUS M5A97 R2.0 - $94.99. You'll find it's a much better board than the Gigabyte one you were looking at.

Also, instead of buying a new video card, look for a used one in the BST. I know there's probably a few mid-range cards hanging around that would be similarly priced to the 7770 you specc'ed, but much better performing. IN fact, try to source as many parts as possible from the BST, including motherboard and processor.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
