Wanting to build a system for gaming/uni work/media hub/overclocking. Not sure on what to pick in some instances and unsure whether the parts I have chosen are any good, so any advice will be greatly appreciated.
How good is the memory, is there better for the money? How important is Latency? I have looked at these http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Memory/DDR3+T...–+1600MHz+%2F+PC3-12800/G.SKILL+Pi+Series+(3x2GB)+PC3-12800C7+1600MHz+Triple+Channel+Memory+Kit+?productId=41157 but I haven't a clue what to pick to be honest.
Will this Samsung hard drive be just as fast as a hard drive using SATA3?
Is this DVD Drive any good?
I'm not sure about the CPU fan, will the Titan Fenrir be too big for the Asus-P6X58D-E by covering a memory slot? What do you recommend? Doesn't have to be the two I have chosen .
The retail copy of windows 7 should be for more than one computer despite it listed as 1 pc, yeah?
PSU future proof?
Will the 1366 socket be ok with 1.65v Memory? I understand this is right on the limit and so may not be safe and/or limit overclocking
the best CPU cooler for the money is the Coolermaster Hyper 212+, which will fit fine in that case and win't block memory slots.
that samsung will be just as fast as any mechanical had drive. NOTHING Saturates sata 2, nevermind SATA 3, except a few of the newest SSD drives. You might consider a 64 GB SSD for a boot drive, and holding 2-3 load-intensive software programs.
the 850 is overkill for any single GPU card. Unless you plan to crossfire a 5870, or SLI GTX470 or 480, you don't need that kind of power.
