corsair HX1000W PSU
the case im not sure yet to choose... hopefully you could say a great one that has it all, was thinking of the HAF 932 from coolermaster, but no dust filters, wtf... that low
and lastly is the 2 msi own, 5970 that ive waiting for
the question is, when i put the ocz amd black edition, in, it will be default settings right...
is it safe to just clock the ddr3 settings to 1600 since it counts as an OC... is that safe to run it, without, having to worry about burning some other parts? please hope you can come with some great tips for me, , and btw thanks for the forum, many great features
For any ram you are considering, do your own homework.
Go to the ram vendor's web site, and access their configurator.
Corsair, Kingston, Patriot, OCZ and others have them.
Their compatibility list is more current than the motherboard vendor's QVL lists which rarely get updated.
Enter your mobo or PC, and get a list of compatible ram sticks.
Cpu performance is not very sensitive to ram speeds.
If you look at real application and game benchmarks(vs. synthetic tests),
you will see negligible difference in performance between the slowest DDR2 and the fastest DDR3 ram.
Perhaps 1-2%. Not worth it to me.
Don't pay extra for faster ram or better timings unless you are a maximum overclocker.
thanks, im not really planning to overclock, yet, want to learn more about before even trying to overclock
ive got a standard one, from kingston, wich is cl9 and got stock, mhz of 1333, wich wont count as OC , ive allready looked in to some rams, first of all i just want a really good gaming cmputor that can handle applications (games) for some years to come, wich i hope this build will.
Hi thanks for even more, tips, so for just gaming, i should stick to 4 gig? ive seen that the 8 gigs wont do soo much faster loading, and such, was thinking, why not, put in 8 gig, when my budget can manage,...., will it be negative performance, for me, using 8, then 4 you say?
im gonna look into, the g-skill rams, i live in sweden, and ive never seen any retailers here that sells em
I don't know of any game that can use more than 2 or 3gb of ram by itself. So, if you will be running only a single game, then 4gb will be fine. If you will be multitasking, and have several other tasks open and running, such as e-mail or virus scan, then more ram will keep the tasks from interfering with each other.
I see no drawback to 8gb. Windows-7 (64 bit, of course) will make use of it. Only with a maximum overclock might 4 sticks be an issue vs. 2 sticks.
