Hi!
I'm building a new pc, and I got some parts listed up, but thought it would be a good idea to post here to get advice before i push the "buy" button :)

I have graphic card, hard disk and power supply already.
graphic card: Zotac GeForce GTX 470
Power supply: Real Power M620

These are the parts I'm thinking about buying.

Motherboard:ASUS Rampage III Extreme, Socket-1366
ATX, X58, DDR3, 4xPCIe(2.0)x16, ROG Connect, BlueTooth, SATA 6Gb's, USB 3.0

CPU:Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-2600K
3,4GHz, Socket LGA1155, 8MB, Boxed

Ram: Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600MHz 4GB CL8
Kit w/2x 2GB XMS3 modules, CL8-8-8-24, 1.5V, for AMD Phenom II, 240pin

Cabinett: CM Storm Scout Midi Tower Black
Vifter: 1x 140mm Front, 1x 140mm Topp, 1x 120mm Bak, Red LEDs, Window


I was wondering how well these components match up, any parts I should switch out or any other helpful information. Especially the motherboard and CPU, does the socket match? Thanks! :)

Well, I want to be able to run Guild Wars 2 at maximum settings when it comes out, that's kinda the goal :)

Sorry, I'm not that experienced with computer parts, but what is mobo?.. :/


would these do?

Motherboard:

MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

CPU:
Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-2600K
3,4GHz, Socket LGA1155, 8MB, Boxed

or

Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-2600
3,4GHz, Socket LGA1155, 8MB, Boxed

I'm not really that concerned about the cost, but more the performance.

Sorry, linked the wrong motherboard. Meant this one

ASUS P7P55D-E PRO, Socket-1156
ATX, P55, DDR3, 2xPCIe(2.0)x16, GbLAN, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.0

I was hoping to be able to buy every part needed on this Norwegian store called Komplett. They however don't have any motherboards above 1500 with 1155/1156 socket. But if it will be able to run well with GW2 I'm more than happy.

Guess I missread, but read the 1155 and 1156 socket went along.

How about the same motherboard with
Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-870
2,93GHz, Socket LGA1156, 8MB, Boxed?

Alright, and you think these will be able to run games in the near future, like GW2 to it's fullest? I've heard the CPU and Motherboard is the most important components in a computer, but I don't know how much that means I have to spend on it :p

For games the video card plays a huge role. The CPU makes more of a difference depending on the game, a lot of games are GPU (video) dependent. It's hard to say what performance would be like in GW2, you can always want until it's released and check out the performance comparisons or benchmarks.

ASUS P6X58D Premium, Socket-1366
ATX, X58, DDR3, 3xPCIe(2.0)x16, 2xGbLAN, Firewire, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.0

How many Video card are you planning to run?
The P6X58X supports 3 @x16x8x8 if you not going to run 3 save the money and get the Sabretooth which will support 2 at x16x16 or 3 @x16x4x4, which also has a 5yr vs 3yr warranty.

For Ram you want tri-channel(3 matched sticks) of DDR3 1600 @ 1.65v.

Probably just two.
How about this one then?
ASUS SABERTOOTH X58, Socket-1366
ATX, X58, DDR3, 3xPCIe(2.0)x16, GbLAN, FireWire, TUF, CeraM!X, SATA6Gb/s, USB3.0

But would i still want 3 matching sticks of DDR3 with a motherboard with only 4 ram spots?
