  1. Well it looks all fine but will you need an optical drive? usb is all good, even if u salvage an old optical drive it can help and make things much easier. Other than that it is looking extremely good for price :)
  2. I'd go with this mobo
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157246
    A little cheaper and it has similar features with a better size (ATX vs mATX) Not saying that matters a huge deal but ATX is a bit easier to work with and upgrade with.
  3. looks pretty good you should look for combo deals theyll save you like 30 dollars
    i saved almost 60 on my build using combo deals

    pople in the review says it only supports single sided memory what does that mean?

    and would this CD burner be good?

    how does the OEm work?? do i not get a cable to conect it with my Mobo??

    It's basically a different type of RAM. Do you plan on installing more than 2 sticks though, 8 is plenty for most. ATX just gives you more space to work with and more PCI slots, etc.
  6. also thats a h61 is there much different to the h67 i choose?
  7. Best answer
    Not really, they have basically the same capabilities.
  8. hmmm still somewaht unsure

  10. well i just placed the order, i took your adivce and got the cheaper MOBO and got the XFX 6870 with dual fans which is only 20$ more, because ive heard problems about the normal one overheating
  11. Alright good luck! Umm... if you're worried about cooling

    Pretty solid. But the XFX version is nice 2 specially since you have lifetime warranty.
