your paying a little too much for that ram. Just because its binned to get to those speeds doesn't mean that it will go higher than normal pc32000 TCCD/5 chips.

tried to go to that msy.com.au website but I guess it was down. Your stuff seems a little expensice. For example your processor for $255 is $190 @ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103535 but I guess its because your in australia???

Make sure you get a venice core CPU.


Are you overclocking?


To get the best out of that mouse you need to get a mouse mat. (See the Razer for a alternative mouse, even though its an opinion on what feels right, the razer is the better mouse.)
