Best Setup?

I'm considering a new computer and my budget allows for 3 different setups that would cost me roughly the same:

All of them would use:
Mobo: ASUS P6X58D-E (LGA 1366) Intel X58
Processor: Core i7 930
Power Supply: XFX 750W P1-750B-CAG9 Black Edition

Setup 1:
SSD Intel X25-M 80GB for system install.
Ram: OCZ Intel Core i7 Edition OCZ3X1600R2LV6GK DDR3 1600Mhz 6GB
Video: EVGA Geforce GTX 460 768MB

Setup 2:
WD Caviar Black WD6402AAEX 1TB SATA 3 for system install
Ram: 2x OCZ Intel Core i7 Edition OCZ3X1600R2LV6GK DDR3 1600Mhz 6GB - 12GB total
Video: EVGA Geforce GTX 460 768MB

Setup 3:
WD Caviar Black WD6402AAEX 1TB SATA 3 for system install
Ram: OCZ Intel Core i7 Edition OCZ3X1600R2LV6GK DDR3 1600Mhz 6GB
Video: 2x EVGA Geforce GTX 460 768MB - SLI

This Computer is going to be my main work/gaming machine, so it's a mixed use of it, wich of the builds would I get the most performance out of? (I don't work with video editing or anything like that).

  1. well i would go for a gtx 460 1gb if you could, get this hdd http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185&cm_re=samsung_spinpoint-_-22-152-185-_-Product

    and 6gb of ram is good do not get more unless you are using cs5 and so on, i would get an ssd later when prices go down
  2. Unfortunetly I live in Brazil where parts aren't as easy to find >.>
    The ones I posted are the parts I can get from legitimate stores that would make my life a lot easier if I ever need to RMA it.

    (I was trying to find the 1gb version of the gtx 460 since it's also 256 bit if I'm not mistaken.)
  3. Only GSkill I can find around here is:

    Would that be better then the OCZ one?
  4. GSkill are cheaper and offer better performances. I prefer it over OCZ. The one you mentioned has a higher frequency but higher latency as well. Higher frequency does very little unless you overclock. So stick to the lower latency RAM's.

    My Choice:
    GSkill, Mushkin, Corsair, Patriot/OCZ.

    Oh.. the link you quoted was from newegg and the one i did was also from newegg. So why cant you get it from the above links?

    Although i must say your newegg looks a lot different than mine!!! :D
