I think the 1866 MHz ram is kinda overkill. But that's just my opinion.


No with that mobo and CPU the 1866 is actually great. It's the new 1600.

There are some concerns, your 8gb of RAM is a bit low. Need to get that up to 16 for SC.

NEED a Solid State Drive. At least 120gb to run your OS and game. A single 770 is reportedly enough for medium settings. A dual will be triumphant I'd wager. Just as a general piece of advice to all tho, invest the extra 50 bucks in bumping to 4GB of VRAM. With the MASSIVE amount of textures the game will require to be drawn, I'd want to have the headroom.

Before I recommend an overclock setting, who makes the Mobo? Asus? Gigabyte? MSI?
Great power supply, it'll save on your power bill and corsair power always runs clean.

NEVER... EVER use a TV for gaming. Use a monitor. The increased pixel density and refresh rate are well worth it. Especially in something as fast as a dog fight, you don't want to be playing a second in the past, and be fighting fearsome motion blur.

The mobo is an asus and i might take away the extra GPU if recomanded and add other parts

For the present, upgrading to a 4gb 770, getting an SSD (120 or 240gb) should be good to get you going. In the next year doubling the GPU will be sweet. Just wait for a sale.

As for overclock, try 4.5ghz at 1.2v Should be stable.
