I posted a few questions yesterday trying to make sure I picked out all the right/compatible components for my new gaming PC. I was recommended a few things and I am getting ready to place my order at Newegg.com tonight! I would just like to get some professional assistance to make sure everything looks OK. I also have a few questions about a couple compnents that I will include in the list. So here we go . . .
No you don't need more than 4GB for a gaming build. You should just get get any old set for $40, but if possible make sure that the voltage is at most 1.6V, it should be below 1.65V tho.
G.Skill, Geil, Corsair, Kingston are just four good brands to choose from - there are probably others but I can't remember what they are atm.
It's not just modularity, it's higher efficiency and better all round performance. The Elite 430 is not going to be a particularly easy case to get things tidy in so yes I do think the modularity is worth it in that case.
the recommendation i will make on the DVD drive may sound silly: they all do the same thing with roughly the same reliability, and i doubt you will use it much. Get one that does not have WHITE TEXT on the front. It will be ugly. I would go with: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
