Re: New build. Help a noob.
After a solid search session, I think I've found my final plan. I've decided to go with Patriot Viper Xtreme (2x2gb) over the OCZ's. The viper's run at 1866mhz over the OCZ's which run at 1600. I know it won't make a huge difference, but every bit helps.

This all comes up to $1284.90 on newegg, which is under my budget(sweet). Any final thoughts? And once again, I appreciate all the help and advice you guys gave.
