Okay so i took everyones advice and i downgraded a bit. Can you guys give me some idea of any compatibility issues that might come up? And also, if i get a water cooler, does that fit in seperately from the original fan? Or when i have a watercooler do i not need a normal fan? Could i have both? i'm really confused about this because my older pc overheated and i need to keep this one cool.
Alright, took a look at your build. Here's a few things.
1. You are paying way to much for your ram.
2. That heatsink is not much better than the stock one. Get a hyper 212+ or similar.
3. That motherboard does not have a second PCI-e slot, meaning no Xfire.
4. That hard drive is intended as a storage drive. Get a Samsung Spinpoint *F3* 1TB. Much faster.
That's all I got. I was a bit ruthless, but we are here to save you money/get you a better PC. Hope that helps ya out!
I'm on my g1 so I can't link you, sorry about that. For the ram, there is currently a deal on corsair 4gb stick. Buy 2 and you are set. As for xfire, it means putting 2 ati gpu's intothe same sytem, and making then work as a team. That is useful for if your system isn't the fastest in a few years and you wanna give it a little upgrade.
