  1. Gskill ram pc8000 blue sticks they rock
    ultra psu is total junk

    i fired seagate after 7200.9 - they use cheap plastic for the sata cables they fall off and do not lock well - idiots- samsung won!

    psu: get antec, silverstone,corsair pc power and cooling or then thermaltake

    squeezer thermal gel? lol! get artic or mx-2 artic is for better movablity - mx-2 is better but may delaminate

    tiger stuff -yuk look around more
  2. +1 on tigerdirect.

    HD4830 is much better and cheaper.

    Get an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro or Xigmatech HDT-S1283, no extra thermal paste needed. Thermaltake is not worth it.

    Get a WD 320 or 640GB HDD.
  3. Where do I find these items? Newegg? Am I missing anything?
    Once I build it...
    Do I just start it up and what?
    Wait for a prompt from BIOS? to go ahead and install Vista 64?

    I actually wanted Vista 64... Is this system good for it? do I need 4GB more RAM?

    Thanks for the tips...
  4. Well at least I can change these things... I really wanted a PC that was very upgradable.

    Yes, Newegg.

    Just start it up, then put your Vista disc in the drive.

    Vista 64 can be installed with less than 4GB of RAM.
  6. I just realized that my Asus M3N78 Pro mobo is 1066 native...

    But can I have 2BG of 1066 RAM in each of the four RAM slots?

    Or can I only run 4GB total of 1066MHz? and/or 8GB of 800MHz total?

    Can I mix 1066MHz with 800MHz?

    What difference does running Windows Vista 64 make upon this?

    Please excuse all my ignorance... But I am at least a fast learner... lol

    You can mix speeds; it will run at the lower speed.

    AFAIK if you populate all 4 slots, it won't run at 1066.

    Vista 32 bit can only use a maximum of 4GB.
  8. Ok... So if your not running Vista 64 there is no reason to have anything more than 3GB of RAM?

    and... 1066MHz can only run at a total of 3GB?

    So I guess I'm glad that I only have 800MHz in my two sticks of 2GB RAM running Vista 64... for what it's worth... at least it jives... I guess.
  9. But it would still be better to have two sticks of 2MB of RAM running at 1066MHz while using Vista 64?

    1066 is faster, but you probably wouldn't notice it.
  11. Right... I guess about 2 or 4% faster... so I have recently learned.

    Ok, Cool... I'm sticking with my 800MHz

    Kind'a wished I had purchased the G.Skill sticks though...
