Updating motherboard and Ram


Feb 9, 2012

Just looking to see if this will be alright or if anyone else has any better suggestions?

Im looking to update my Ram and Motherboard.

I currently have

ECS BLACK SERIES GF8200A (V1.0) AM2+/AM3 NVIDIA GeForce 8200 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

OCZ SLI-Ready Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800

I Have a
AMD Phenom II X4 925 Deneb 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor
GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5
that I want to use with my new Mobo and ram.

I was thinking MSI 870S-G46 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard with G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

I have a $200 limit with shipping. Basically looking for something to support my current CPU with the possibly to upgrade later on and with two PCI16 slots, I also want to update my ram to 8gigs.

Thanks for any advise.
