Default Re: Build Questions

In terms of performance or anything regardless, no not really. Pro only has a few more features that you probably wont even use, and can support more RAM.
Windows 8 x64 can support 128GB of RAM and 8 x64 Pro can support 512GB of RAM.
Not like that really matters lol.

For more of a comparison you can check the chart out here.
Windows 8 editions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Would this PSU be good? Its the same wattage as the Corsair and its modular. It is also cheaper with some sales going on it right now.

Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-650 650W

Some people trust them, I don't. Maybe if it was their "Fortress" label, maybe. Still though, not a fan of Rosewill products. I consider them to be the Great Value to Newegg.

If you want a PSU in that price range that is modular you also have this one.

I'm changing my motherboard to an ASRock Z77 Pro4 because it is atcually cheaper to get that on amazon than it is to get the Pro3 on newegg. (I have to pay tax on newegg)
