Default Re: Check my gaming build for me please.

I already have a cooler. Its this one:Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

I dont need both do I? one for the GPU? A cooler is the same as a heatsink? or does the cooler replace the heatsink?

You don't need both of them. The Rosewill vernong posted is just a another option to consider.

Thanks man.

Does it make sense to have a crossfire supported video card paired with SLI ready memory?

Just ignore the sli thing on the memory. It just means it compatible with some feature on nvidia motherboards and has nothing to do with sli or crossfire.

I would change the os to vista home premium but other than that it looks good.

My friend told me that her teacher said Vista is going to go under. Is this true?

Check this out. What do you think?

Vista isn't going to go under and sp1 doesn't install xp. That blog is either a joke or the writer has no clue what they are talking about.

I have been running vista for a while now and like it much better than I ever did xp.
