PSU: Real Power 550 Watt, RS-550-ACLY
Is it enough? Is it a good brand? I've heard terrifying stories of PSU's dieing and damaging the whole system, and would like to avoid that .
Motherboard: Gigabyte, GA-965P-DS3
Not sure, but I want one of Gigabyte, that's for sure. It's just that the names are so confusing, how should I know what the difference is between the GA-965P-DS3 or the GA-965G-DS3?
I'm planning to upgrade later on to 2GB RAM and a DX10 GPU, and I might be wanting to OC later on. :roll:
Now, for some general questions ( :tongue: ) :
1. What do you think of it?
2. How long would it last with another 1GB RAM and a DX10 GPU Upgrade?
3. How would the performance be with recent and upcoming games?
Help much appreciated!
If you are planning on expanding to 2GB, getting 2x512 limits your expandibility. You may want to get a 1GB stick now and get another one later.
Yeah, I was worrying a little about that too, but my Mobo supports up to 8GB and would 2*1GB be much faster than 4*512MB? Because if I take 1*1GB I will be stuck with it for a while and I thought 2*512 was so much more faster.
2x512 is not "so much more faster" than 1x1G. What the poster above was saying is that if you ever planed on going above 2Gigs of ram, it would be impossible to do so as you would eventually be stuck with 4x512, where as in the future you could possibly have 4x1G. If you dont think you'll ever go beyond 2 gigs with that type ram then by all means go with your plan of the 512s
