I found this ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard, but is it still compadable with everything else? Link: Newegg.com - ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Also for $30 I'm just wondering that seems low for high end?

Would the heat sink be good enough for a gaming computer?

yeap, you only need the extra cooler (you get one with the cpu) if your going to over clock.

when you buy the cpu, it will say retail or oem. if its retail you get a cooler fan with it, if its oem you dont get a cooler fan. and then its about $6 cheaper.


what graphics cards you thinking of?

I don't plan on over clocking any time soon but if I think I need to then I'll get a better or 2 fans. Also I found this video card recommended for i7 processor. EAH6950/2DI2S/2GD5
ASUS HD6950 delivers DirectX® 11 gaming graphics with cool factory overclocked performance Link: ASUS - Graphics Cards- ASUS EAH6950/2DI2S/2GD5

Its definitely a good card, although i would recommend looking at the 7xxx series now not the 6xxx series.

The 7850 is a better card for roughly the same cost.

Newegg.com - HIS IceQ X H785QN2G2M Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

or the 7850 oc versions.

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100355OCL Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card OC Version

the 79xx series are better again, but the cost is greater

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100355OCL Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card OC Version

all I3,i5 an I7 have intergrated gpu but its not graet for gaming.

it is a 4000 series. not 6000 series that your looking at (or 7000 series im recommending)

---------- Post added at 09:57 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:55 AM ----------

a 4000 series will play skyrim on low settings (used to have a 4850 hd)
