#1lonelyhero24Posted 8/5/2013 8:15:33 AM
Haven't PC gamed since I was eleven, so my rig is waaaaay out dated only 2 gigs of ram, runs like a snail & I can barely play sonic DX. Anyway I'm starting fresh might sale old PC for a little more cash but what's the best gaming rig I could build with 700-800$? I can wait till winter for deals on parts but I need to know a good mother board that makes it easy to upgrade when needed etc. Thanks guys :D

Does that have compatibility issues with the gtx 770?

A PCI Express x16 card will work with any motherboard that has a PCI Express x16 slot, basically. Since all motherboards in the past few years have had at least one such slot, and since all video cards in the past few years have used PCI Express, compatibility is a non-issue.

I have the 770 on my Sabertooth. It runs flawlessly. Plus the assist fan helps reduce the heat.

Ok I'm willing to splurge if I go with the Sabertooth & gtx 770 intel or AMD processor? Also what brand for ram? Sorry for all the questions just want a gaming rig that runs like butter :D!
