G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI - Retail $189.99 The i7 930 is the replacement for the i7 920. I would get the 930 instead of the 920. You may also want to re-think your GPU decision. The ATI 58xx series is better in every way. fardado07 April 13, 2010 11:53:21 PM Thanks man, really helpful =P Let me see if i understood your tips: MB: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard RAM: G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI Processor: i7 930? shortstuff_mt a b V Motherboard April 13, 2010 11:55:16 PM Yup, and an ATI 5850. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... aford10 a b V Motherboard April 13, 2010 11:57:19 PM ^ Hard to argue with that.
