After much research I have finally put together my new computer build, but wanted to check with the vets here to see if I have missed anything. Will this all work together and am I over/under doing anything? Any forseen issues or suggestions will be much appreciated. This is my first time building a pc.
If gaming is going to be the primary use of this machine, you can stick with 4GB RAM and still perform fine.
This set has a lower Cas Latency (7 vs. 9), so it will perform better, even at a lower rated speed, and saves you $50: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
You could save even more with a set with a Latency of 8 or 9 (the difference won't really be noticeable), and still get a good set from a good manufacturer.
The 955 can overclock easier than other CPUs. Because it is the same physical chip as the 965/970, it requires only a minor tweak (I'm sure you can find a guide to OCing it).
I don't know why that Caviar is more expensive. Most of the other Caviars are around the same price as the F3s. Maybe its some sort of special drive? Dunno.
Don't forget that you can always add RAM in the future
SSDs eventually "wear out," but even without proper use, its life is still much longer than a platter drive. The only thing that really harms the drive is writing data, so if you use it as a boot drive where you read data but rarely write, it will last for extremely long times. The TRIM features help reduce that degradation significantly (they need to be enabled using software; Windows hasn't included native support for SSDs yet).
