All products from MicroCenter. I know there is no main drive. I'm waiting for them to hopefully come back down in price soon. 2 big questions i have are 1) how is this ssd and 2) will this ram work. Thanks!

  1. 1. Your SSD is good for that price...
    2: Your RAM too slow, below on the RAM link, it's a better one and for same price!
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428

    What do you think about this ram. I'm not trying to be a douche and ignore your suggestion I just figure that if I'm buying everything else from MicroCenter I might as well get my ram there too if I can.
  3. its DDR3 1600 mhz and its 1.5V its good to go
  4. Nice, i heard some ram is to high or something. Like the actual physical size of it. So should there be no problems with fitting all these components in this case. Also what kind of sales can I expect to see from newegg during black friday. Is it possible they can beat microcenters prices. Thanks for all the help thus far guys.
  5. cant tell with sales just keep an eye out
  6. WOW, why would anyone go for a CL 10 at 1600MHz? lol... Too slow... get this CL 9 at 1600mhz dual channel...

    Do MIR(Mail In Rabate) for $10 cheaper which is a great price...
  7. we were already fixing his ram read more before you post LegendKiller...
  8. wait so cl 9 is better than cl 10.
  9. I wouldn't pair ga-z68ma-d2h with an unlocked processor. I would pair it with i5 2400.
    If you want the i5 2500k better go with asrock z68 extreme3 gen3.
  10. the ram legend suggested is 1.65 volts, you will want 1.5 for i52500k.

    Are you sure you want a micro atx board?
    and +1 to vx53c
  11. I would get these http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0360527
    in fact... i got them on my system and they are wonderful. They'll even clock at 7-8-7-27 with the 1.65v
    While a lot of debate is going on forums about vram, nobody can back up either claims. Let's just say it all works fine and nobody has burnt their processor. Especially from a ram colossus like kingston.
