Re: About to buy components for custom build-would appreciate comments/suggestions
It would help if you stated your overclocking expectations and
gaming requirements, i.e., which games and screen resolution.
That RAM sure seems expensive for the specs offered. This seems
like a good deal for a hundred less, and very likely to run at DDR800:
SPD is configured with slow timings so it will boot at 1.8v. The Crucial
RAM is mentioned here: http://anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=2871&p=4
Asus gives you right angled SATA connectors with that board-- Perfect for
your sideways mounted hard drive. You won't need to buy them separately:
Keeping your hard drive cool is good insurance.
Are you using the stock HSF or are you going to hang a two pound weight
off your motherboard?
Not actually a gamer? Consider a fanless 7600GS OR GT. Are a gamer?
By now, you've heard about the nVidia 8800 GPUs. You could overclock
an E6400, buy the cheaper RAM, and get an 8800GTX! But you might then
need a bigger power supply.
