I think I have finally got a system that is rock solid. http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx... I am strictly on a 950 dollar budget and cannot go over. More about : build 950 dollar budget Gin Fushicho June 28, 2009 12:18:02 AM *thumbs up* looks good only problem I see is the timings on he RAM are kinda high. go with these. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... either that or mind as well go with these which will still feel like the same speed because of lower timings. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and if you want cheaper but same performance and changing a brand wont kill you. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Vaxorth25 June 28, 2009 12:58:46 AM Thank you for all of your input on the RAM, I have decided to go with the OCZ Reapers Thanks for you help!

AKM880 June 28, 2009 2:09:18 AM I agree with Ragsters. +1 Gin Fushicho June 28, 2009 7:26:56 AM Out of the 3 Ragsters pointed out I would go with the Corsair. It can go above 750Watts up to 900 something. but the 750 Watts is the constant rating not the maximum. Thats only if you choose to change the power supply. and I'm glad that you went with the reapers. ^-^ I have some old Corsair myself but they are Micron D9's and they were purchased off a friend who didnt want them an more. if he had not sold them to me I would have gotten the Reapers I suggested so let me know how that RAM is. =) cobra5000 June 28, 2009 3:45:06 PM If your going to go wity the AMD chip, why not save some cash and pick up a 4870 or you could buy 2 of them now and crossfire them for almost the same price as the nvidia card!

Take a look at the chipset before your say anything , its the (questionable) 980a chipset.
