here is my i5 build tell me what you think of it and can you guys please tell me which ram to use for this build Hard drive
TSD-1500AS :: Seagate Barracuda 1.5TB Hard Drive ST31500341AS - 7200RPM, 32MB Cache, SATA-3G (0.95 lbs) $120 http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...
i am wondering if i can use this ram with this i5 build cuz its 6gb tri channel and i heard that i5 supports only dual channel memory so does that mean i can only install memory sticks in a multiple of 2
as long as you have three or more memory slots (im assuming it has 4) you can still install the additional stick. but it wont be running in dual mode, and therefore you could potentiaslly lose some performance. i would recomend swtiching out for a dual kit instead.
other than that, it seems like a very good build. im not too sure about the PSU though. have you checked otu some reviews. the PSU is probably the msot important part of a system, and one you dont want to skimp on. i would highly recomend grabbing a corsair one instead. you certainly dont need anywhere near 750w for that build, so you could always drop down to a 650 or 550 if the corsair is more expensive though.
it worth doing, since a bad PSU can wreak havoc on a system.
