Hi all,

I’ve got a PC(desktop) which I use to play games/watch football and movies/browse internet

Nvidia GeForce GTX 780
ASUS Xonar D2X
Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Dual Fan Performance CPU Cooler
and I have decided that it's time to get a new motherboard, processor and jump from DDR2 to DDR3 memory so this is what I am thinking to get

I also want to keep using my
• Nvidia GeForce GTX 780
• ASUS Xonar D2X
• Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Dual Fan Performance CPU Cooler

Is it all gonna work fine? Any advises? Suggestions? I am not that good with building Gaming PCs so need someone to check if everything will fit and work together

btw I've got OCZ StealthXStream 2 700W Power Supply , is it not good enough for the system I am planning to build?

all I want is to be able to run all the latest games + being able to watch a movie/football match online at the same time as I have 3 monitors + browse the internet at the same time and have no problems at all

Thanks a lot in advance for any help, if you want to ask questions please email (e-mail address removed)

P.S. no OS is needed

I have changed i7 for i5, 16GB Ram for 8GB RAM, decided to keep my own PSU and now need your help with choosing motherboard and have 3 choices:
1. https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Com...350+Gaming+Case+WORTH+£39.99+?productId=60525 comes with a free case
2. https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Com...+5+Intel+Z97+ATX+Motherboard+?productId=60523 will need to buy a case as well

Looks like I have chosen the wrong RAM so swapping it for https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Com...ad+Channel+Kit+[PV38G160C9K]+?productId=56088 - 1600MHZ so don't know anything about OC motherboard

I'd go for the 'free' case MB ... I see no advantage to any of the others. :)












get some yellow spay paint for the case. :thumb:
