  1. Welcome Newcomer! :)

    The CPU + MOBO + RAM = all good together. However, prior to installing OS, update the BIOS {Rampage III Extreme 1005 BIOS / 2010/09/10}

    RAM - http://www.corsair.com/configurator/product_results.aspx?id=1493037

    I would better recommend - http://www.komplett.ie/Komplett/product/ZKB_01COM/08_MEMINT/productdetails/15590445/Corsair_Dominator_Memory_6_GB__3_x_2_GB_/CMP6GX3M3A1600C8/default.aspx

    Water cooling {your site has none} - http://www.komplett.ie/Komplett/catalog/ZKB_01COM/13_COOLERS/12_WATERCO/default.aspx
    Simple Water cooling {Corsair H50 + 2 fans for push/pull or H70}:

    [/thanks a lot for the kind word jaquith.
    i will just ask one more noob question if you dont mind. :D
    if it says on motheboard that i shouldnt go over say for example 1.65v on ram does that mean i can put it at 1.65 or less
    again i checked that info and everyone says 1.65 is fine, but i like to confirm everything as much as possible
    thanks for everything.]
  3. sorry i should have put this in my first post but i forget

    what do you think about this monitor i will get it for free if i order my components at that place, i am not looking for any hd super quality just something that has a dvid dual at the back of it and no evident lag ;) so it suits my graphics card

    ps there is two, asus and msi graphics card ( i supose asus so they pair up nicely with mobo?)

    monitor:

    Graphics card: msi

    Graphis card: asus

  4. if anyone has any sugestions as to which monitor for for gaming no hd no 3d neccesary i will probably play most games at 75hz because my eys seem to accept that frequency best (glaucoma problem)

    thanks for everything
  5. Regarding the GPU either the GTX 480 or GTX 470 are both stellar, so it is a question of budget.

    Between the 2 GTX 480's - http://www.komplett.ie/Komplett/product/ZKB_01COM/10_GRPCARD/04_PCI-E/productdetails/20023338/MSI_N480GTX_M2D15_Graphics_adapter_GF_GTX_480/N480GTX_M2D15/default.aspx

    Monitors {my recommendations}:
    1. ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24 2ms
    2. ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" 5ms

    per your limited site:
    Acer 23" S231HLbd - http://www.komplett.ie/Komplett/product/ZKB_01COM/16_MONITOR/03_MONITOR/productdetails/20023572/Acer_23_S231HLbd_LED_5ms_DVI_D_VGA/ET_VS1HE_009/default.aspx
    Samsung 24" P2450H - LCD - 2ms - http://www.komplett.ie/Komplett/product/ZKB_01COM/16_MONITOR/03_MONITOR/productdetails/20011802/Samsung_24_P2450H_LCD_2ms_HDMI_DVI_VGA/LS24LRZKUV_EN/default.aspx

    RE: (glaucoma problem) - "refresh rates" on LCD/LED/Plasma don't have the same effect as they do on OLD CRT monitors. There's a difference between redrawn and scan rate; meaning there is NO flicker whatsoever on the LCD/LED/Plasma monitor or TVs.

    Good Luck!
