None seem to last for ever so buying a cheap one isnt a big problem . I have had a good experience with lite-on . Just make sure its a SATA dvd drive . the RAM you have chosen looks to be C9 from the part number . You'd be better off with 1333 MHz c7 timings Its actually faster in practice and often cheaper . Read the memory articles on this site that gfx card should handle the resolution of your monitor . oddel321 February 17, 2010 11:17:59 PM what ram other then that should i buy with a case/memory combo at newegg within the next week with c7 timeings at 1333 mhz instead of c9 anyone know or wana help.Cant be to to expensive Related resources About to pull trigger, please review . - Forum HELP!
