Why 16, so I can add 16 more later on. I`m gonna just use it to surf the net LOL. But seriously, I`ll be doing some gaming.

The card I want to get will be either an Asus 660 or 660 Ti or the MSI 660 Twin Frozr.

I only asked because 8gb is the sweetspot for gaming. You could use the money saved on ram towards a SSD or the water cooler. Does look like a pretty sweet build

I just bought a ssd, it`s in my specs. So I don`t need that. I got 8 gigs of ddr3 1066 just layin here from a job I did awhile ago, ( anyone wants it, let me know ) but I want the faster Corsair.

I`m not gonna buy just 1 8 gig stick of memory, the 2 pack of Corsair is $119, no biggy.

I have the Z77MA-G45, you a looker at a higher end one. As you will have a K chip, I would make sure you can use Vdroop option in it's BIOS, you might need the g65 or higher for that. But if you only plan to OC to 4.5 it will be good.

Thanks, I`ll look at that board.

The G65 is $200 and doesn`t say anything about supporting the 3rd generation i5 or 7 chip.
