Do you have you a question about the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H Motherboard?

Q: In the spec, it says it supports up to 1600mhz, which I'm running on this mobo at the minute, I want to upgrade to 1866mhz, I have HyperX Beast Gaming ram. The only reason i'm asking is because the description says it doesn't support Windows 8 and i'm running that at the moment. Kyle
Answer by CCL on 15th October 2013
1866MHz memory would function, and the motherboard spec indicates it can run faster memory if overclocked. This motherboard will work fine with Windows 8. -Danlevan

Q: Is this board Rev 1.0 or 1.1? should be written on the motherboard itself somewhere. Thanks.
Q: Re: Gigabyte Z77X-D3H. I'm about to order parts for my 1st pc build. Will this card fit into a CM Storm Scout Case SGC-2000-KKN1-GP (£71) ?. Does card take i5 3570k CPU; 256mb SSD; Corsair 8gb DDR3 Vengance Low Profile RAM; CCL SSD 2.5 - 3.5 Adapter; Which PSU do you recommend ? I'd like a quiet one. Which graphics card do you recommend ? Light gaming, FPS etc Which optical drive do you recommend ? Do I need a sound card ? If so, can you recommend one ? I appreciate I have a lot of questions but would like to order from you and ensure all is compatible. Many Thanks - David
Answer by CCL on 5th February 2013
All the components you have listed would be fine for your build. Regarding a PSU we would recommend a good quality 550W power supply, such as from OCZ, XFX or Corsair. Graphics card wise, the best card you can get for less than £100 would be the Radeon HD7770, which would be more than enough for light gaming. Any DVD drive is fine as they all work at pretty much the same speed and support the same formats, and you won't need a sound card as the motherboard already has one on-board. -MR
