Im brand new to the site, and brand new to building computers. Ive decided to build a computer because im going to school for computer engineering and it sounded like it would be a fun project. Im looking to buy memory for my ASUS P5Q SE/R motherboard. It says on the specs it can hold up to 16 gigs of memory. I know i dont need that much for what i want to do. I want a computer to be able to run fast and play occasional games. I will be running Windows 7 RC. Currently i have
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0ghz
Asus P5Q SE/R mobo.
500 Gig Hard drive
modtek Alien case.
550 Watt PSU.
Nvidea Geforce 9800 GT 512Mb pci-E
No memory yet.
Just need some helps on getting some memory and how much?
P.S. and how about a review on my system specs as of now? this is my first time building a computer so id like to know how i did?
