surprised b1gapl doesnt have anything to say about the RAM
are you planning on overclocking your vidcard/proc, because then you will need a heatsink fan

I didn't say anything about the RAM, because I just noticed it right now. I would of said ballistix, but for that price, it's cheaper and those XMS2s C4 are pretty good. Just ask nagasama.

agreed on a sata burner, but disagree on the Ultra, not worth it...

Well I did not want the ultra because what I've heard about it, that it is barely better than the gtx so I thought why not just save the money.
