Ok, with your help this is what I've ordered. I recently read that the speed of the ram has to be compatible with the fsb of the processor to run fast, even if the ram speed is slower. Did I get good ram for the processor I'm getting? How about the rest of the computer? I can't wait till I get it!!!!!

how much did it cost you?

Please get rid of all the other crap that is on your post, like the 1x and unneeded info

You should have just ordered each part off newegg and put it together yourself. Woulda been a *** of alot cheaper

Yes its fine as far as compatibility between parts.

people these days who buy prebuilds bring a tear to my eye. I hate to see good money go down the drain like that (lip trembles)

There will always be those who would rather pay someone else to do it for a number of reasons.

I myself, will always be a DIYer

Ok, all of that cost me $2,666.28 CANADIAN from ncix.com. I priced it out and it wasn't THAT much of a difference than ordering off of newegg, not to mention that all the trouble of shipping from the states into Canada. Add the fact the ncix assembles it for free and it's not that bad a deal. Also, I have a very sketchy and busy schedule so I don't have the time or the frustration level of learning how to put together a computer right now. I also picked up a Acer AL2216WBD 22IN Widescreen LCD Monitor for $496 canadian as well.

Congratz, the RAM is okay, but you could have gotten something better for nearly the same price, still pretty good.
