np means no problem, people like to abreviate things. And you were talking about ram right? A base for how much ram you should have is 512 you can go 1024 if you really wanna spend the money but I doubt you will need it in the near future unless you are doing some heavy multitasking and stuff.

lol in ur sig, i have the exact same brands as u except a few things like ur CD drive and i dont have the thermaltake actice memory cooler. Does that really help? I thought it would be a waste of money since i thought ram does not get that hot.

Default same PSU without the water cooling?

Conviently, I too am building a similar system only without the water cooling and with three extra hard drives. I am having a hard time starting up the system and after about 10 sec the fan on my video card stops. I have a 450 watt PSU right now, but should I go larger or do I have a different problem with my video card?
