What is a good intel cpu and good intel motherboard I was contemplating on purchasing this

MSI Z68A-GD80 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600K

I have a 1200 antec case, 1200w antec power supply, geforce gtx 560 ti, 3tb western digital harddrive green cavier


my purpose and goal is to play high end games such as call of duty and modern warfare on it as well as have the computer for a longer period of time before it becomes obsolete...



Will this all be compatible? How hard is it to do the simos on the motherboard, I'm a novice at this

If you follow the link on that Newegg page to the Manufacturer Product Page, then click on Support, you will find links to QVLs - qualified vendors lists. These are lists of compatible CPUs and RAM for that specific board. You must buy a CPU from that list to ensure compatibility. For RAM, there are too many makers and offerings for motherboard makers to test, and list them all. So you can buy off-list as long as you buy RAM with the same specs as listed RAM.

I recommend 8Gb for dual-channel motherboards.
