Might remember me from reddit? here is my 1300$ Gaming build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/PixelHax1337/saved/hZnNnQ
I wince when I see Windows 7 in a build, but other than that it is a great build, and will serve you very well. I was very close to getting the Asus Strix in one of my build but I ended up with the MSI for color purposes only.
I thought I hit he 8.1 OS, Even though I hate 8.1, I'll pull through
Yeah, I hated it too, but it is much better for games and such, with support running longer and such.
Nice build 10/10 jealous
THis is very good. Go for it.
It looks great actually!!!
Only thing i'd change is your ram, It's overpriced and not that fast.

lol I see you recommending RAM changes in like every thread.. idk what you have against 1600 RAM but that's all you need for gaming. His CPU doesn't support he 1866 RAM, and would require you to manually do it with XMP settings to run it that way, and you sacrifice some stability in doing so esp. if he doesn't OC his CPU and risk some errors in your build. 1866 is technically faster, but it's nothing you're going to notice in a gaming build at all.
Can you tell me what ram I should get then?
Are you on a budget or is there a color scheme you're going for? If on a budget just go with the cheapest one with good reviews http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f31600c9d8gao
You don't need anything faster then 1600 RAM for gaming.
What RAM Should I get then?
That Corsair Vengeance will do great.
The ram he recommended isnt any better then the ram you selected, although his says that it runs at higher speeds the CAS is higher. This will cause the ram to refresh slower and will run just as fast as 1600, if anything 1600 at a CAS of 9 is better then 1866 with a CAS of 10.
Could you possible recommend 8gb of RAM That would be best?
Yeah no problem give me a minute.
This one is a little more then the one he recommended, but with a good brand and over 129 ratings at a average of 4.9 stars its hard to beat. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f314900cl9d8gbxl
This one is another one that fits my recommendations and its cheaper, although the looks arent that great.
If you have more money to spend on RAM use these parameters and find the one that suites you! These are all the best with a speed of 1866 and a CAS of 9.
