Nice solid build and 750w is enough.

I'm going to go with the ECO. Really don't like the 1.65 Voltage on the Ripjaws. Everything including my PSU ?

Just curious here, but why TH recommended my RAM if I can get better at lower price ?

PSU - Corsair = Good to Go.... Enough said, plus right wattage/amps for build.


RAM - TH made a good call on the RAM, so I change my tone to you are good with them or the ECO's. The article was very good on them. :)

Do I get approximately the same quality ? For the price only, I would go for the Eco, but if there's a difference in performance.... What's your thoughts ?

The Tridents are solid RAM but I still stick with the ECO's low voltage requirement. It gives you overclocking room on the highend like the Tridents has the ability to decrease it's timings. The only plus side to the Tridents is it's abilty to run DDR3 1600 at Cas6 timings.

My other concern with Tridents is the height of sticks with your cooler. It is a large cooler and will take up a RAM slot most likely if it a tall RAM.

So you would basically go for the ECO right ?

Another question, why you went for an AMD build ?

I'm saying I would go with the ECO but the Tridents are still a good choice.

You lost me on the AMD comment? I'm running an i7 920 DO for my build. I did my daughter's build with an AM3, since they are hard to beat price to performance wise.
