  1. I believe you would benefit from the 700W GameXstream - as the 8800GTX isn't exactly a power saver...also, your upgrade path would be widened.

    Which OCZ Ram have you chosen, as with the HD?
  2. HD is a Seagate Barracuda and the RAM is Gold Dual channel DDR2 PC-6400
  3. I would look at Corsair XMS2 for a good stable DDR2 800 RAM set.
  4. ya i guess i should get that. too bad its like almost $100 more :(
    oh well
    thanks for your help!
  5. Its actually 50$ less...?
  6. maybe it is. what website are you using? and is it a canadian site?
  7. Blah, the Seagate I have is hella loud.
