Didn't you already post this same exact thread in the General PC's section?

Yeah but I realized it isn't really a general PC and I don't think the admin is active to move it other at the moment, sorry if this is a problem.
I just thought it'd be a little more active over here to resolving my problem.
Didn't mean to cause any complications...sorry

Grinchy, I would gladly help you out on MSN or otherwise, but I am at work right now. Send me an email or private message with your msn email (email is on my public profile; just click my name on the left) and I will explain things and walk you through it.

Overkill PSU

get a Corsair 650tx, you don't need that much power

get the OCZ ReaperX Instead

Default Re: My current build, need help

why the reaperx over the corsair ram? And is this the one your speaking of? Newegg.com - OCZ ReaperX HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
Just wondering, and also, I've noticed that the motherboard doesen't have very good reviews, is there anything out there that will give me better performance/stability without the problems? Thats compatible with the rest of these?

Thanks.

get 750i SLI FTW by eVGA.

Change RAM to a lower timing like 4-4-4-12

get the corsair 650tx or Power & cooling 610w

how about cheaper 9600Gt like Newegg.com - BIOSTAR V9603GT52 GeForce 9600GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards or Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-96TES2P-FSP GeForce 9600GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i FTW SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
So get that motherboard instead?
And get two of these instead?
Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-96TES2P-FSP GeForce 9600GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
And why should I choose raptor X over the corsair mem?

I changed my psu to Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CE, CB, TUV, FCC, CCC - Power Supplies


Any other changes?

And these are all compatible...correct?
Sorry for all the questions, just a avid learner, and I'll only need to know once.
And also, I don't know much about mem timing...so if a little help if you can, thanks for help guys.

Default Re: My current build, need help

or u can go with the cheaper BIOSTAR.

the other ram is better because it has lower timings 4-4-4-12 is better than 5-5-5-15

i think they are compatible
