A friend of mine wanted a complete gaming rig for $1000 (including Optical drive/HD) so I tried to make the best out of what I could buy (I went $10 overboard due to shipping but rebates cancel that out). At first I wanted to crossfire two Sapphire Radeon 5770s (Vapor X) but was it really worth the extra $80? So I swapped that out since I had to budget cut everywhere to keep it as close to a grand. I had to add SATA cables so it's $1014 total.
Well with the links fixed, you had some problems. First, OCZ makes terrible sticks of RAM. They have all kinds of compatibility issues. Second, it's a triple channel kit, which is made specifically for the i7. They'll be very slow with AMD systems because AMD builds use dual channel RAM. Finally, the 965 is just a more expensive, slightly overclocked 955. Save the money and get the cheaper one.
