Any problems with this build?
 
See any issues with these parts before I order them? Or have better suggestions for the same price or cheaper? I don't plan to overclock or run SLI.

yea you are better off getting an 8gb ram kit. 2x4gb for $50 or less. It'll save you some dough.

Thank you very much for the feedback. Seems there are a lot of memory compatibility issues with 1155 motherboards. Most common problem I see is "its not compatible memory with that motherboard". Do you think I should be concerned with that?

Go with GSkill and Asus and you can't go wrong.

You can get a better proc for cheaper here:
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0388577
That's an i5 3570K for $190
I've had mixed feelings for BIOSTAR.
They are usually the cheapest option, but I've had marginal stability with the AM2+ board I got from them. I'm a bigger fan of ASUS (but they are more expansive) or ASROCK (not much more expansive, but better in my opinion).
2x4GB for RAM is definitely the current sweet spot for price.

Thanks for that tip on Micro Center. Great price but it looks like it only available in store (why no shipping?). I don't have a Micro Center in my state.
