Thoughts? ~Z More about : build final gaming system thoughts fastx21 April 18, 2010 1:05:35 AM How about an F3 spinpoint 1TB instead? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... And if the proc was $200 then you're really only saving like $15 from a better set of memory such as below. ..edit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... As for the blu-ray. Personally I came to the conclusion that I'll never buy a blu-ray movie so why bother. Anyway I'll probably wait until the blanks are cheap enough before buying a writer. m 0 l xxzabxx April 18, 2010 1:09:50 AM Hmm , not a bad pair of suggestions. Def want to stick to blue as ram color *stupid, but none the less*. Any other thoughts or suggestions are as always, welcome. m 0 l Related resources New gaming build - $1k max budget: final thoughts - Forum New AMD PC Build Thoughts and Recommendations welcome - Forum FINALIZED BUILD YOUR THOUGHTS PLEASE CRITICISM WELCOME - Forum Gaming PC Build Final Thoughts - Forum First Gaming Build - Final thoughts/considerations before purchase - Forum Can't find your answer ?
