Help deciding on an OC'd bundle

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on this one for me please. Would there be any real world/ difference for gaming between the following two systems. There is about £55 difference between the two.

For £429

Intel 2500k OC'd to 4.5Ghz
Asus P8P67 (Rev B3)
8GB Mushkin Silverline #996770 (2x4GB) DDR3 1333MHz 9-9-9-24
Be Quiet Dark rock CPU cooler

Or the exact same setup but with
8GB Mushkin Blackline 1600MHz , CAS 9-9-9-24 Timings, 1.65v VDIMM
and a similar cooler for £479

The OC'd result is the same so i cant really see any reason for spending that bit more...

Many thanks for your help in advance! :)

  1. The RAM speed increase will make no noticeable performance increase except in benchmarks so go for the cheaper option. I assume this is the deal offered by Aria.
  2. Cool, thanks for that.

    It is indeed the Aria bundle - have you heard anything about them as there isnt any real reviews out there. They seem to be the cheapest around. Whilst i could get the components individually and then OC it myself i am generally lazier these days.
  3. I have bought components from them without any problems. My friend built a pre overclocked PC nearly a year ago and that all ok as well.
