  1. You can get 2x4gb ram for cheaper than $50. Crucial and Kingston sells for around $40-45. Do not get Windows Ultimate. It will not aid in gaming in any way and you probably won't need all its features. Get Win 7 Home Premium and save $85. Use the $85 on a Radeon 7850.
  2. the only problem is i already have the ram os power and harddrive so i wont be able to save money there haha but also i was planing on eventually running two 6850's crossfire.
  3. The thing is, your psu will not last as long. You can still send it back.
  4. wait but why wouldnt 620w be enough? the power comsumption for the system dosent even need that much?
  5. Quality is more important than wattage.
