  1. I would go with this RAM.

    What resolution are you using now and what will you upgrade to?

    What is your PSU?
  2. The monitor I'm going with is going to be the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236047 and the PSU is the Corsair 850TX.
  3. Good luck with your build! :)
  4. Everything look alright to you? I'm going with one 640GB WD Caviar black right now just in case I decide to add any more later for raid. I was going to go with a VelociRaptor but this cuts cost quite a bit.
  5. Looks good. The VR is faster, but not noticeably.
  6. I suggest you go with this ram. Otherwise build looks solid.
