  1. ^ That is a good setup except for the PSU...get a Corsair/ Antec EA/ Seasonic/ Silverstone/ PCP&S/ OCZ Mod instead...
    What will you be using the PC for ?
  2. Ehh, I'm iffy on that mobo. I had one instance where the board would not accept the RAM (mind you, this was RAM my client picked out from THEIR list). But other than that, I had no problems getting a high/stable overclock.

    I highly recommend paying the extra ~$20 for a 5770 instead; '70 is the (way) better bang for the buck.

    Which g.skill ram did you have in mind? These are pretty sweet

    I'd also pick a spinpoint f3 over caviar black

    Also, any of the brands gkay recommended are great. I personally prefer corsair & seasonic; ocz psu are extremely cheap without sacrificing much quality.
  3. Thank you. I will change the PSU, hope can use this PC for a few years.
