Default Re: Need Help Confirming Custom Build

hmm... lets cover stuff...

the 4gb 2x2gb Kits aren't usually that great because they limit overclocking capability, and who really needs 4gb unless your into CAD, plus you'll need a 64bit OS to recognize it on Windows
Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

why get that ripple prone PSU? get a Corsair 520hx

no need for the 640mb gts, get the 320mb GTS for 200$ less...
(get the cheapest one there)

you can cut corners by taking a cheaper board, since most of em overclock about the same... but this is purely your choice:

if you wanna save some extra cash for like a soundcard (or something)

get: abit ip35 (for RAID if you want that)

or: Abit IP35-e (if you don't want RAID)

these are a bit better than the gigabyte p35's we usually recommend, because they overclock a bit better and are cheaper
