    The HDD is a bit faster then the WD if you need more room try the F3 1T

    The PSU will give you more room of OCing and adding another GPU down the road

    Thanks. I made those changes. I'll also be getting this OCZ memory instead..

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227381

    because it has better cas latency? Are those timings adjustable in the bios? I'm a little unfamiliar with memory specs, so if someone wouldn't mind explaining whether this OCZ would definitely be better for my system than the G.SKILL I picked out? Thanks!

    Thanks for the Megahalem link and reviews! A lot of people recommended it, but I didn't look too much into after I failed to find it on NewEgg. It's unfortunate they don't carry them.
  6. The ram JackNaylorPE posted would work well
