You have selected a triple channel memory kit. To get 12 gb in dual channel, you would need a 8GB kit and a 4gb kit. And 1200watts is WAAAAY overkill. a good 750-850watt PSU from a good brand like Corsair, Seasonic, PCP&C, or Antec would be enough to handle upgrades to crossfire or overclocking. 4z3rty January 11, 2011 5:00:57 PM this would fit better then G.SKILL Ripjaws X + Turbulence II Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17066CL9D-8GBXLD adn this Thermaltake Power Supply W0131RU 850W 14cm Fan Active PFC ATX 12V 2.2/EPS 12V SLI Ready Black Related resources Need help on new PC build ! - Forum New gaming pc build £700 ($1050) budget - Forum New PC Build .

They are not that highly thought of. Again something from Corsair, Seasonic, PCP&C, or Antec would be more dependable in the long run. 4z3rty January 11, 2011 5:10:13 PM how about Antec CP-850 850W Continuous Power CPX SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC "compatible with Core i7" Power Supply clarkjd a b B Homebuilt system January 11, 2011 5:18:49 PM Here is a review: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=... The reviewer says something about it being proprietary to 3 cases and others having to be modded. You might want to check that out. From the Antec website: Features: Unique power supply construction compatible with the following Antec cases: - Twelve Hundred - P183 - P193 - DF-85 Would you change your case to one of these, or pick a PSU with an ATX form factor? 4z3rty January 11, 2011 5:33:26 PM but personally ive never had any troubles with tt and ocz psus in the past 4years.... clarkjd a b B Homebuilt system January 11, 2011 5:39:07 PM It's up to you. All I can go on is the ratings. Just because more people have issues with TT than with Corsair, doesn't mean you will. OCZ is another well thought of brand, in fact they bought out PCP&C. You pays your money and you takes your chances. 4z3rty January 11, 2011 6:35:13 PM found this one Antec Power Supply HCG-900 80PLUS BRONZE 900W ATX12V version2.3 EPS12V Retail clarkjd a b B Homebuilt system January 11, 2011 6:57:50 PM I think it would be more than you need, but definitely better than the TT.
