My Recommendations
  • CPU | MOBO Combo: i7 930 & Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R, which gives you SATA III & USB 3.0 support
  • RAM: G.SKILL PI Series 6GB(3x2GB) DDR3 1600 Cas7, which gives you better performance with lower timings
  • HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB, which is a cheaper and faster hard drive. It is based off of two 500GB platters, which provides the speed difference.
