Runs all my games (Steam games llike Payday 2, Civ 5, Skyrim) at high/max settings. Very satisfied
You didn't really need a 750w psu, but it's a great idea if you're set on upgrading in the future(something i didn't think out haha)
I do belive that big psu can make your system quieter since it's only used a small percentage of the watt
Yeah I planned for future Crossfire
How did you get the operating system for only 15 dollars?

Pretty good, but for gpu intensive games I would get at least 3 gb of VRAM. Other than that, you have a good path for upgradability for the gpu, and 6 cores should hold out for a while. That motherboard has a bad rep btw.
2gb is fine for 1080p at the moment tbh. a graphics card like a 7870 has a too thin of a bus for more memory to be usable.
MSI has a bad reputation? What are you talking about? That Mobo works JUST FINE with that GPU+CPU.
More VRAM is needed the higher your resolution goes. 2GB is perfectly fine for 1080p. I've build a system with this board personally. I have never had an issue with a MSI product.
I've also had an MSI mobo and had no problems, Zylos where do you get your info from? ask.com?
