right people, building my own system t-bird case, phenom ii x4 850 3.3ghz, 500 watt alpine silent psu, gigabyte mb, antec kulher h20, samsung dvd, ati 5450 graphics card, 8 gb corsair vengeance.

my question is my motherboard is compatible with 32gb ram so it has 4 slots, i was thinking of getting 1x8gb of ram as 8gb i more than enought, so should i get 1x8gb or 4x2gb i was thinkn 4x2gb so i get dual channel 2gb for each core

More about : 8gb ram

get 2x4GB, that would be swell
same price and room for extra ram later!

how well do u think this build will perform as i have booted it as still need ram, thanks

not at all but, the mothebroard manufactorer recomends which slots to fill to take advantage of the dual channel magic. usually it's every other slot

edit: sorry i didnt see your last post there

All that ram would be useless for games, 8gb is all you need. Am I looking at the same post? The 5450 cannot even play bf3 on low. This isn't a new build is it? I am assuming it's just an upgrade with old parts listed but nothing was really explained. Nor what you will be using it for.

THIS IS MY FIRST BUILT BELIEVE IT OR NOT WITH NO USED PARTS ATT ALL, THERE ALL BRAND NEW. I WILL BE USING THE 2GB GRAPHICS CARD ACTUALLY WITH A 1TB WD CAVIER, I CAN RATTLE OF A CRACKN PC IF I HAD THE CASH. IN THE REAL WORLD THIS WILL BE A GOOD PC BUT IN YOUR GAMING WORLD IT PROBABLY WONT, BUT HEY WHO NEEDS GAMING WHEN I HAVE A PERFECTLY NEW PS3 SLIM THAT WILL PLAY ANY GAME YOU WANNA RATTLE OFF

There's nothing wrong with a non gaming pc, every computer has its uses. Plus you can always upgrade anything on that desktop. Just needs a better gpu and it'll play every game. How much did it cost?

plus ram
