  1. Since I plan on using an i3, should I only get the 1333 ram, or will the 1600 ram work?
  2. Go ahead and save a couple bucks and get the 1333mhz RAM yes, make sure its 1.5V.
  3. thanks nekul, I went with your suggestion, for 6$ more,it has a lot less -reviews.

    also changed the ram to ripjaws 1333


    Any other suggestion would be great...

  4. None that I can think of, thats a pretty good deal. That system will beat the crap out of WoW. The computer case is a little on the cheap side, but if you're not picky, it wont matter too much.

    Last few Question before I order tonight.

    for world of warcraft .. is a GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 6870 Better

    and is the psu enough power for this build, there is a few cheaper more watt ones, but from what i read Corsair makes a good product.

    would a cd drive from a 3 year old computer work, or do i need a new one, due to new connections??
    thanks for everyones thoughts, hopefully this time next week ill be up and running my new i3 :)
