    Good Day

    I was asked to build an Office Pc, they also said no Graphics Card is required, but will need to fast.

    So here is the list of the components:

    CPU: Intel i3 3220 3.30Ghz Dual-Core Ivy bridge
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H, Socket 1155 - Intel H77 Chipset
    RAM: Corsair DDR3 1600Mhz 4GBkit (2 x 2GB)
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache
    Chassis: Antec One S3 ATX case
    PSU: Corsair CX430 430w

    My initial selection of RAM is the DDR3 1333mhz BUT they wanted a DDR3 1600 instead.
    So my question is, will the motherboard be able to pick up 1600Mhz of RAM speed? Because on the Gigabyte website, they said in order to run at 1600, a 3rd gen Intel CPU is required. Which is why i chose the i3 Ivy bridge CPU and not the Sandy bridge.

    Next question, does H77 have an onboard graphics? Cause i see they have video ports...Just wanted to make sure to be on the safe side.

    And i know some component could be an overkill for an Office PC, but they want to have a bit of a future proof in mind.

    Many Thanks
    GTR

    if it has ports,chances are it has onboard graphics.for what you want to use it for this is a pretty good build.
