I swapped out my memory for the G Skillz so thank you!!!

The foundation for my build actually came from an article on building a solid PC for $600. I then started tweaking, making it MAME specific. That's where I read about that particular Asrock MB. I am certainly open to other options! I'll see if that Asus pops up on PcPartPicker.

Thanks!!
