Tags: New Build Systems Last response: May 7, 2012 3:27 AM in Systems Share tribe2010 May 1, 2012 5:21:38 AM Hello, I've browsed this site many times but have never posted. I now am seeking some advice. I've gathered some parts the past couple months from sales, etc and so far I have: IN WIN MANA134 case ($20AR) OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W ($50AR) OCZ Agility 3 Sata III 60GB SSD ($50AR) Samsung DVD Burner ($13) Sony Internal Memory Card Reader thing (~$15) I have reserved and am picking up tomorrow: i5-3570k cpu ($190) P8Z77-V LX Socket 1155 Z77 ATX Motherboard ($90) I still need to get... RAM! I'm thinking 8 gig (2x4gb) is good for now? DDR3-1600? I already have a 1tb external HDD. I don't game (not a whole lot of time to in law school). I do want a damn fast computer tho that will last me quite awhile and I can hook up to tvs, etc. Down the road as I get more money I plan on getting: Larger internal HDD Graphics Card of some-sort Another monitor Sound like I'm on the right track? Any suggestions on RAM? Thanks guys..
