If you have the money then it is a heck of a build, bud.

I'd switch SSD to Vertex 4, and the memory to Corsair Dominator GT.

Yea, it was more because I have one of those all ready. I thouht about ponying up and buying a new one but its not really worth the extra money for slightly better performance.

As far as the ram goes, how does the dominator OC?

They are better for than Vengeance for OCing...but they are more expensive...it just seemed like that wasn't an issue when looking at the rest of your build. Some kits come with fans that will help even more (also, Corsair's website says you can pick the colors of the top of the heatspreaders...but I haven't found where you can get different colors...but I haven't looked to hard either.. )


Oh, and I forgot the "GT" at the end, it's Dominator GT

Its not a huge issue however, I dont want to be stupid either. The only reason I am getting the SBE is because I will be running alot of charting software in the back ground at all times. After looking at the dominator ram Im going to stick with the vengance, the physical ram size is more important to me than extra speed. I will be running a ram disk for critical applications that need to respond as quickly as possible.

It really depends on how RAM intensive your software is and how much multitasking you'll be doing, but I run over 4gb all the time. I'd leave at least 6-8gb open, which only leaves 8-10gb ramdisk...so make sure that's big enough for what you're doing (I'm going to be setting up a ramdisk pretty soon at work and I'm using 128gb, but I'll be working with video).

GT's are specifically meant for extreme OC as in subzero temps. You can buy cheap G.Skill or Corsair that is 2133 and don't need special ICs or heat spreaders.

Thanks for the heads up. The charting software is around 400mb, however I keep around 2 GB of back testing data with it. So a 8 to 10 GB disk will be plenty big. Plus I will be running 32 GB so I am not worried about running low on system ram. I think i will run about an 18gb disk and put the game of the moment on there.
