    okay i agree i should upgrade ram, but what about this skit, its twice as much ram and the same price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220518&cm_re=patriot_12gb-_-20-220-518-_-Product

    at least compared to this 1600 CL7 corsair its the same price: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-TR3X6G1600C7-PC3-12800-1600Mhz-240-pin/dp/B00280YJO8
  3. 2. your CPu Cooler : Noctua / Tuniqtower / Silver Arrow
    3. add 500~1TB HDD : WDC Raptor (RAID)

    hmm.. all triple chanel but good for OC is Dual Chanel :D
    sample :
    CORSAIR Dominator CMP8GX3M4A1600C8= CL8
    GSKILL F3-16000CL6D-4GBPIS = CL6
    TEAM XTreem Dark - TXD34096M1600HC9DC-D, 2x 2GB, DDR3, PC-12800 CL9
  5. How about a 3TB HDD for storage?
  6. no problem ! i think HDD 2TB 7200 RPM enough.. setup use RAID
    Western Digital 2TB Caviar Black / green same !

    OCz SSD for system ...wow fast
