  1. Samsung F3 500 gig hard drive is cheap and very fast

    and dvd drive will be fine . 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 .
  2. 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 ;)
  3. The 955 is an awesome processor. Not really worth upgrading to a 965. G.Skill Ripjaws are good ram. Definitely go with the Samsung, I wish I did.
  4. How well will this build work with games at 1680x resolution ? and future games ?
  5. Bump anyone ?
