Default Re: New Computer Build (thoughts)?

- Ram is a waste to me... 6GB (I would think) should be more then enough to handle what you need. (but since you have 8GB now, I guess you use all of it?)

- Personally I would forget the 9800GTX, and go with the GTX 280 or better.

- I would also go with a smaller, single drive for the OS and apps, then keep a 1TB for media and such. It would be easier to handle CHKDSK, Defrag, etc... with a smaller drive on the fly, than that big monster.

Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70 LUX rgb
NZXT Source 530 / i7-8700K / Corsair H100i v2 / ASRock Z370 Taichi
SM951 M2 256GB / 850 evo 1TB / Seagate 2TB / WD 2TB
2x16GB Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000 / nvidia GTX 1080 ti / Seasonic M12II 850W
