Hey guys,

I'm currently building my own PC and I already bought the gpu (gtx 770) the cpu (i5 3570k) the case (BitFenix Prodigy) and the OS (Win 7). I'm left with about 300 dollars to spend for all the other parts of the PC. Can someone help me find these parts to fall within my price range? (PS I plan to OC my cpu and possibly my gpu so I need a cheap yet good quality mobo)

Thanks!

Hmmm, I don't think an overclocking mobo, RAM, HDD, and PSU aren't going to fit into a $300 budget.
Example:
mobo (Asus): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131840 for $127

PSU (550W modular Rosewill Capstone): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182262 for $50

RAM (G.Skill Ares CAS9): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231544 for $77

HDD (1TB WD Blue): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236339 for $60

Total: $314 and depends on rebates to get there. I'd also rather have at least a WD Black if not a SSD plus something else.

I actually live near a Microcenter so that's not really a problem. But do you think I should go for the RAM socialassassin recommended?
