yo tehdigit, dont go around spreading bullsh1t rumors about DFI, some of the new ppl will believe and spread it., DFI is better, MUCH Better than Asus. and i dunno where u heard it but, DFI is even more STABLE!
Im sorry man but u are off! way OFF! and corsair ram it has problems with is this 1 brand of Corsair VALUE! ( NOT XMS, or ANY OTHER) ram.
Do not go around badmouthing DFI without doing some research (PLZ!) they make quality boards, VERY good quality boards
Lyrics: Get teh 4400+ then if u dont want to OC
If u want good ram, get G.Skill or OCZ
Trade in one of ur 250GB for a 36GB Raptor for System programs (OS, Games, etc.) and keep the other for storage (files, music, movies, etc.)
And save some money by switching from the OCZ to the Antec TruePowerII 550Watt, u get more wattage, more Ampage, + the 520Watt is not dual rail, hence it has less total ampage than the Antec.
As for mouse check out the Logitech G5, or MX518, or G7, or MX1000 if u really got some money
And as for monitor, i would suggest the Viewsonic VP930B, read up on it on Toms Hardware and see if u can afford it, its a great monitor, dont be discouraged by the 8ms response time, just dont get anything higher than 12ms.
and thats about it, if u have anymore questions, ASK, or u can send me a PM if u want. either of u.
Note: TehDigit i suggest going to DFI Street and doing some research on it before badmouthing it ( sry if that sounded like a flame)
