I am building a completely new system:
16GB DDR3 RAM
2 TB Seagate HDD
1KW Zion PS
Thermaltake RX-I case
MSI Z-97 G45 MB
I was also looking at a Sound Blaster Zx sound card. But this MSI motherboard has this Sound Blaster Cinema thing that's suppose to be so good. I do a lot of gaming and also listen to and watch a lot of media so the sound is as important to me as the video. Do I need a sound card with this motherboard or will I be able to get top quality sound without it?
Also, the RAM I am looking at is HyperX Fury series 1866 DDR3. The MB can OC up to 3000. Can this RAM be easily OC'd or will it be a bottleneck?
