I would like to know if there are better price/performance components that I may exchange in your opinion. It has been like 4 to 5 years since I build a new system. I am also planning to OC the cpu to maybe 4ghz and the graphic card as well, of course I would have to read a lot more in order to keep myself from frying anything. I will for sure go with the cpu and mobo no question about that. thanks in advance for any advice. ahh, also need to know which gamer keyboard and mouse would be best. I was no sure of which Ram to choose so I listed those 2 but you can tell me which could be best other than those..

  1. FIRSTLY - I dont know where in the hell you plan on paying 384 dollars for windows 7!?!?!? It should be $100 bucks or so.

    It'd help to know what you were going to use teh system for? If it's for gaming, you dont need a 6core processsor.
    -The powersupply is overkill... you'd be fine with a name brand 650watt unless you plan on doing crossfire in the future.
  2. The $384 is a combo deal - Windows 7 64bit os home premium together with the graphic card. The psu I chose is for future crossfire most likely (not sure yet). System is for both hardcore gaming and also lots of multi applications video encoding and such.
  3. no more?? did I do something wrong here, strange I have gotten on more advice.
    I still do not know which ram I should go for whether is those or others. also, what about the fan cooler and the mouse/motherboard gamer I had asked for?
    anything else you guys can trow in will be appreciated. thank you.
