I would try to go with non OCZ RAMs 3. ModXteme line is 80 plus certified so i'd go with those 4. No CF? Hit the 870 chipset for bigger better tech Share smile9999 June 19, 2010 8:42:23 PM 1.dont know why I like the 965 lol 2.is the hyper-x Kingston better ram or adata, those are the only other choices for me in ram 3.ok I will go with the modxtream thanks 4. I will go CF later very later, thats why I think the 5870 is a waste and 5850 is better but I am not sure m 0 l Related resources First Build - Budget £1000-1400 (~$1500-2100) Final Check-up - Forum $1000-$1200 budget machine final check up! - Forum Buying now, final check $1000 budget - Forum Budget AMD cruncher new build, final check with you guys! - Forum New $1000 Gaming Rig - Final Build Check - Forum Can't find your answer ?

A Data would be fine as i know HyperX may get overpriced m 0 l smile9999 June 19, 2010 8:54:45 PM I will be getting the 23" in about 3 months or less, kingston hyper-x 1600 is actually lower than ocz platinum in price here and lower than adata so should I go with it also does design programs like autocad or solid edge benefit from high processor, should I try to get the i7 and ruin the budget or will it make no difference also does CUDA of nvidia benefit design programs sorry for the ton of questions m 0 l cygone June 20, 2010 1:27:37 AM Corsair or Crucial are generally accepted as best memory manufactures.
