dunno which 1 is better or..


Not sure if i need 1866 or just 1600 is fine? i've read that 1x 8gb would be enough, also if 2x 4gb is cheaper should i just do that or try to stick with 1x 8gb? also i see so many different kind of 1600.. with different timing does it really matter?

does sound barrier things help?
so let me know what case i should get?

    It should be the same one...that Seagate.

    If your talking about the Corsair 400R it comes with fans. You might want to get a 140mm side fan for it.

    I would try the on board sound first and if it doesn't cut it then look for an Asus Xonar sound card. Their fairly cheap and they do the trick. The 5.1 cards are solid.
