Everything went and goes great together im running window 7, 64 bit and playing any game at full graphics. Didn’t even run into one problem with this build apart from the cooler being a bit of a mess about to put on but not to much trouble. Got it running raid 0 with two 500 GB Sata 2 drives and 1tb spare sata 2 drive.

I  don’t feel the need to go to sata 3 or ssd yet ive never had a problem with load times so cant see any reason to pull the extra notes out for just bragging rights.

Had a small problem with the graphics card it would only take the driver off the disc, if I downloaded the latest one it would say “This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware”. I got round this by updating to the latest bios I think it was F8 then reset the bios that was enough to get it working.
