Decided recently to upgrade my computer and I'm trying to make this go as smoothly as possible so I'd like to ask the good people here to let me know if they see any compatibility issues, have any recommendations as to "this is much better bang for buck than that" and answer a couple questions.
Here goes. Questions first
Will there be any compatibility issues between a GDDR3 1986Mhz Video card and Corsair DDR2 800 memory?
I'm currently using 32 bit XP, is 64 bit Vista worth picking up? I don't plan on going over 4 gigs of Ram in the foreseeable future.
Will if you don't own a PS3 and have never seen BR videos in RL then I suggest you GET ONE! I haven't watch DVDs ever since BR came out. Seeing that the BR player you listed is only 150, I say go for it if you plan on watching movies.
450 Watt or greater power supply with 75 Watt 6-pin PCI Express® power connector recommended (550 Watt and two 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)
Certified power supplies are recommended. Refer to http://ati.amd.com/certifiedPSU for a list of Certified products.
