I need a recommendation for Ram, looking to get 4gb.
Right now, my parts adds up to $645, and I'm figuring <$100 for the ram, so under $750 which is the budget I was looking to stay in.
Looking for comments on if anyone would recommend switching out one piece for another, need a suggestion for some ram, and I'm wondering if the PSU in the Sonata 3 will be strong enough to run the system. Can anyone comment on the stock HSF that comes with the i7, is it decently quiet? Also it's been a few years since I built a system, so I'm wondering if I forgot anything! Thanks for the help!
Actually picked the Sonata 3 with its PSU based on noise, the Sonata being part of Antec's quiet line, and several of the reviews I read on the CM case mentioned that it ran a bit loud.
Honestly I'd just switch to a better single GPU solution when it's time for an upgrade to keep the noise and heat, both in the case, and the output in my room down as low as possible. Would the sonata 3's PSU be capable of running and cooling the rig I laid out?
I missed the cpu/motherboard combo deal you linked though, so thanks for that, even though I won't use crossfire it looks like it has a few other niceties at what works out to the same price.
