Processor = Intel 4930k
Mother Board = Rampage Extreme 4 Black Edition
Hard Disk = 240GB SSD evo ( For OP)
Hard Disk = 500GB Sata (For Data)
Graphic Card = Titan Black
Mouse= Razer Gaming Mouse Ouroboros
Keyboard= Razer DeathStalker Ultimate

Top Specs are almost Final for my New High end gaming System. but i need help with the remaining two major items (i.e.)

1) RAM: Which one is better for my system ? Vengeance Pro or Dominator ?
{8GB *2 =16GB}

2) Power Supply: I have TX750w used for 4 years but never gave problem. Will it be enough for my above mentioned specs or i have to buy a new one like GS800 ?


(Note: I won`t be able to upgrade system for another 5 years)

this is pretty much what you wanted, and i went with this ram because it is the fastest you can get exxcept the cas 9 version which almost doubles in price. also, a 1tb hdd, and a high quality semi-modular psu.

1. RAM is RAM, the only difference is how shiny the useless heat spreader is.
2. Its plenty.

Also, in 3yrs a mid range rig would outperform that. I'm guessing your dropping say $3000 on a system like this?
Build a $1500 rig with beefy long term components (case, PSU, Cooling and mechanical storage), build another in 3yrs using some old components. You now have made a better use of your money. The fact that your trying to decide between Vengeance and Dominator memory means that your just wasting your cash at this point.

since you are getting a socket 2011 board look into quad channel ram so 4x4gb sticks, will be faster then 2x8gb dual channel. also 4gb sticks will have tighter timings at higher speeds the an 8gb stick.

I would look into an 800-850 watt PSU The titan needs a 600w 42amp on the 12v rail and since everything screams overclock with that build its better to be a little over powered then not enough.
