Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80605I5760
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3 LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I have built more then 100 pc's over time and I think Ken is right on.

Also, unless you read a benchmark online you will have to piece them together and cross your fingers for a post beep. If you don't post then you have your work cut out.

I would say it really depends on the motherboard and getting a bad stick of RAM. A bad stick of RAM can confuse you into believing that both the motherboard and ram are bad !-) amongst other things.

My best experience in pieceing together a system is when I used all SLI approved hardware and case.

Dave is absolutely right, this should be a nice setup.

Don't put too much weight on whether or not a specific model number is on the board manufacturers approved list. Technically DDR3 is DDR3 and not manufacturer specific. As long as you're purchasing familiar and proven brands like Corsair, GSkill, Crucial and so on, you won't have any problems.

Too many times the recommended list is really a "buddy" list... Good luck with the build.
