This is what i have so far... if there are better options for around the same price (or cheaper) please let me know
I pretty much just do lots of gaming. I try to play everything new that comes out and like to play on the highest settings if possible. My monitor resolution is 1920x1080 btw. I don't plan on overclocking anything... but if you think it's possible (since i'm using stock air cooling) and a good idea with this build then let me know. Also i'm hoping to use this system for a while.
No... your current selection of RAM will work just fine on the motherboard I've selected. There is no need to go to 6GB for gaming. Most reviews so there is little to no benefit in gaming above 3GB of RAM and you want to run Dual Channel. Running 6GB of RAM, will cause you not to be running in Dual Channel.
I think im confused about the listed Memory Standard for than mobo then... it says "DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1333/1066". So you can use other speeds without problems? Like the Ram you and i both picked says its 1600
Now im looking for a good CPU cooler to use... the stock 955/965 fan is really loud when under load. Im looking for something that will keep it cool but quiet under load. There are so many on newegg im not sure really what to pick...
edit: oh i didn't see your post before i submitted this. Ok so which would be better then? I see the one you posted is larger but the specs seem very similar. Also the one i picked is a little cheaper and has way more reviews and a bit of a better rating too.
