Ordering parts in a week. Found a good deal on DDR3 High Performance RAM, and switched to the 790i mobo. If anyone see's any issues with this please let me know. Thanks.

Yes I know most of you will say I am a fool for the DDR3 Ram , and the mobo, but this build needs to last me awhile, and it's fsb being 1600 I can Oc it further, and it will keep me satisfied longer. Please give me some feedback. Good or bad.

  1. save ur money on the ram and get 2 9800gx 2's. actually, 1 would be faster then ur sli 8800gt by a few percent. better idea, get 1 9800 gx2, then sli later if u need to. get a 750i ftw mobo from evga for 200 and get some crucial ballistix ram for 30 after MIR. i dont see any point in paying a premium for ram right now.
  2. Point taken. I really just wanted to OC as much as possible. And the 790i can offer that. I geuss I am having last minute jitters. In a few days I will start ordering parts, and who knows how many MORE times I will change my mind. I just the fastest machine I can get. I figure if the fsb on the 790i will push the e8400 a little more why not go for it. But i see your point. I will probably realize that just before I order and go back to my previous descision of 750i, and ddr2 800. Asfar as the 8800GT's go, I am going to hold onto them for awhile, being that I already have them. Thanks for the info.
