Hi all...looking to replace a 5-yr old computer but don't keep real updated on what's the latest and greatest. I've built a few computers, but I'm no guru, so any advice you can spare I'd appreciate.
Right now, I'm leaning towards just purchasing the components in the "September Builder Marathon" - the $1k enthusiast PC. I don't need a case, power supply, or optical drive. Below is a reminder for what the components are:
Motherboard: Asus P7P55D-E LX LGA 1156, Intel P55 chipset
Processor: Intel Core i5-750
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master HyperTX 3
Memory: Crucial 4 GB (2 x 2 GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3-1333
Graphics: MSI GeForce GTX 470
Hard Drives: WD Caviar Black 640 GB
I'm wondering if anyone has any updated suggestions or changes to this build? I'm a little concerned with the RAM and thinking of going to 8 GB instead. I'm sure there's a few tweaks that people would recommend now that they saw this system tested?
