Sorry if any of these queries are a bit low brow for you but this purchase will commemorate my first personally constructed PC, so please do your part as enthusiasts and prevent me from destroying any of this beloved tech.
I've done most of my homework on this one, but I'd like to know if I'm making any mistakes (glaring or subtle) regarding these parts:
I would mostly like to know what the practical difference between the memory standards of these two boards is for 1600mhz RAM, one being apparently default and the other requiring overclocking? Also any feedback on the features/layout of the boards would be much appreciated.
And regarding the video card, I'm awaiting Fermi -_-
...unless one of you can provide an incredibly eloquent argument for why I should get an ATI 5870/5970, or definitive evidence that 200 gtx will be able to step up to 400 series.
Oh, and if these "rate my pc" threads are the loathsome bane of your forum browsing experience, I apologize and promise to lash myself repeatedly.
^ Ohh for a single Fermi, even the Corsair 550W would suffice...So that 750TX has plenty of power...Actually even the 750TX can handle 2 Fermi cards(Assuming the cards have stay in the TDP limit of the PCIe slots)...but I had suggested the 850W on the safer side...
And as for the mobo, it a replacement to the P6TD, so it will have all the features of P6TD as well as some improvements - Next gen USB 3.0 and SATA 6GB/s support...
