hi i was lookin forward to putting together a gaming rig for mysself.the config is as follows:

MSI hd5770 hawk editn
4gb ddr3 1333Mhz
amd athlon x4 630
ASUS M4A77TD Pro AM3
tagan tg600 U37

I am confused about the ram.The ram i had selected was:
http://www.theitwares.com/gskill-240pin-ddr3-sdram-ddr3...

the page says that the ram is "Buffered/Registered Unbuffered"..however amds offical page says that the proccy supports unregistered RAM...is this gonna be a problem.

One more thing amd`s official page also says that the proccesor supports 1333 Mhz (PC 10600)...if i go for the corsair xms3 (PC10666)...will the processor support it? the mobo supports DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066.

Finally is the power supply good enough??..i have heard people say that the corsair vx450W is a bombshell of a PSU...should i go with that or stick with this one??

ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

I wouldn't worry about the RAM, although I'd go for a G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1333MHz kit. Your Tagan 600W PSU should be adequate.

will the tagan tg500 be enough if i decide to use that one? also should i buy an arctic cooling MX 2 thermal paste or use the stock TIM...i`m not planning to overclock but i will be playing heavy games (crysis, COD 6 etc) for extended periods of time (>6 hours)..

If you are planning to crossfire get the Asus M4A79XTD EVO, Gigabyte 790XT-USB3, Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H. A good 550W PSU (Antec, Corsair, Enermax) should do even for a crossfire.
