Building a new gaming rig. need some feedback. I don't want to overclock. my current SSD is a corsair force (red) 120gb. i've had it about 2 years, not sure if ssd's are much faster now and i should invest in a newer one or get a 2nd one like i have now and raid em. please. any feedback is appreciated.

cpu: i7-440k (http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i7-4770K-Quad-Core-Processo...)

Motherboard: Gigabyte z87 LGA 1150 (http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-1150-Overclock-Motherboa...)

cpu cooler: corsair h100 (http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Series-Extreme-Performanc...)

RAM: ? need some specifics here on which ram to use, would like 16GB. i've been very happy wtih corsair in past.


I am keeping part of my current setup:
Corsair 120gb force ssd (main drive)
2 raptor 150gb in raid 0 (storage)
corsair 1kwatt power supply
2 gigabyte amd 6970'x in crossfire


i'm putting all of this inside a corsair 600t case (http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CC600TWM-WHT-Special-Grap...)

I'd look at 1600 or 1866 GSkill Snipers in a 2x8GB - 1600 - F3-1600C9D-16GSR , 1866 - F3-1866C9D-16GSR

Thanks! 1600 is default speed without o.c. ?

just stick with 1600, intel doesnt benefit much if any from anything faster

IF you do any multi-tasking, work with images, video,CAD, VMs, anything memory centric then yes you will benefit from faster DRAM, gaming, email, basic surfing,then no will see little benefit
