RAM: A-DATA Gaming Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333G (PC3 10666) These are cheap and I hear from the reviews they are a good name jsut not a huge name. They have lower timing and CAS Latency than many others. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ($101.99 + $2.99 Shipping)
CPU Fan and heat sink: COOLER MASTER RR-CCH-P912-GP Its cheap, I am not going to be overclocking anytime soon, still learning how. So I figure a cheap fan to keep it cooler is good, and if I do OC Ill buy a much better one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ($17.49 + $5.99 Shipping)
Id love to hear some feedback. I have been self teaching myself about building PC's and how the hardware works and what things like CAS Latency and L3 Cache are so any tips would be greatly appreciated. I also only know of the really big name brands, so if you know of any good that aren't as popular let me know.
I know. Just thought I'd throw it out there though...
Yeah, its important to do that to be fair. I dont consider myself an AMD fan boy but I wont buy Intel out of principal at least until some things change. Maybe its stupid but I don't really like some of the stuff they pulled recently.
I do tend to prefer AMD for the cheaper prices and extra OC ability. Intel is always so pricey and from what I read for gaming a 955 BE is super good for gaming. They said you don't need a hexa-core CPU for gaming, more for Photoshop or 3D Rendering. So I am trying for fast GPU and decent CPU. Though I have wondered what is different between the Phenom II x4 BE and just the regular Phenom II x4?
