if you're not ocing (don't worry, the bug will bite you eventually, i said the same thing before) then value ram will be fine. i got valueram with my comp and it's now limiting me in how far i can oc my cpu. if you're completely set on not ocing however, you'll barely notice a difference with high-performance ram.

Thanks ravin. Then I will go with the value ram. I was looking into power supplies gaara. I'm going to rank them in the order that would suit me the best. Tell me what you think...

1st:

Thermal Take PurePower W0014 480W

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...153-007&depa=1

2nd:

Thermal Take PurePower W0019 480W

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...153-011&depa=1

*out of curiousity I noticed a piic with a second fan? What's that all about? I like the multi led effect I would get from this fan.

3rd:

Thermal Take PurePower W0023 560W

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...153-015&depa=1

Tell me which if any you would pick considering price and performance. Also, can I get a mid-tower case for a full ATX form factor mobo?

Out of those 3 I would say the 560 W. Since those are all peak wattages the 480W is not very much and might not supply sufficient power for your vid card and processor.

i agree with Dale, unless you have power correction on those powersupplies go with the highest, and yes you can use a mid-tower case for a full atx... as long as the specs say that it can... sometimes (because companies are stupid! lol) the screws dont line up for certain motherboards... make sure its not micro atx or something like that and the case is for full atx motherboards.
