Are you going to overclock the RAM? Awful high end if your not. Not as big, but same price, Seagate 7200.10 320. Sweet drive Overall, nice build. brc80 April 2, 2007 11:28:06 PM No SLI planned for the resolution I game at, but correct me if im wrong. But it seems like if you want a full featured board you have to go with a SLI board.
