Re: help picking out parts to build computer
I'm drooling right now... (in my head at least ;P )
There gets to be a point where memory becomes pointless for the common user. When I had 8gb of memory I opened as much stuff as I could that required lots of memory (IE, firefox, chrome, photoshop, premiere pro (trial), black ops, cod4, virtual box, 3 virtual machines, microsoft powerpoint, word, excel, movie maker, steam, xfire, aoeIII + both expansion packs) and I only hit 60% usage. So, my point, 24gb of memory is a pointless waste of money; 8gb is more than enough.
Oh, and that SSD is out of stock.
