Hey, I need help with a pc that I am building with Cyberpowerpc.com. First of all, I’m not sure if cyberpowerpc is the best website to go to for building a pc. I ventured from site to site, and this one seemed to be the cheapest overall. But I haven’t heard the greatest reviews about it.

I am trying to make a descent pc for video gaming and multipurpose use. I don’t know very much about computers, but I have been learning quite fast. A few questions that I do have are about the power supply, RAM, and compatibility with hardware.

I’m not sure if 750 Watts will suffice for the computer that I have, I do know that I wanted SLI ready power supply for the compatibility with the video cards. I think that it is enough power, and I can’t see myself adding much more to the computer other then things like a wireless network card.

RAM on the other hand I know very little about, besides that you need a lot of it. I’m not sure what the difference between a “PC1333 DDR3 PC3 10666 Triple Channel Memory” and a “DDR3/1600MHz Triple Channel Memory Module” are.

The cost for everything comes to $1840.00, which didn’t seem that bad of a deal. So any insight on my build would be very much appreciated. Here is my build;

-------------------

Buy a PSU with more power, and check in the web page that this PSU support SLI....

RAM, the first onyl can run to this speed, at less that you overclock and put to 1600...the second, by default run to 1600...the difference? Isn't much in performance, maybe some seconds...but not too much how I said before.
