  1. Change the RAM to Crucial Ballistix sport. Been around for a long time and more reliable than any other memory besides Kingston. Same bus speed but 10 euros cheaper.

    for gaming i would consider an Intel build. The fx 4100 throws punches with an 13 2100 in gaming benchmarks.,3136.html.

    There is money to be saved here in your case choice (optional, based on your preference) and in windows as well. unless you have a particular reason to have a retail copy (ie multiple computers), the oem is $100 cheaper
  3. thank you. I did change to the oem version, didn't realize it had a disk. with that savings i changed the cpu to i5 2400. i feel much better.
