you dont need 12 gigs of ram, get this and it will be plenty:

Newegg.com - G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI

that mother board is fine

ill be honest, the way you presented your build is the most complicated way ive ever seen someone post their build list, literaly gave me a head ache..

and i can pretty much gaurntee you i can build a better computer for cheaper. so tell us what your budget is and we ( or i ) will put together a build list that will best suit your needs and get you the absolute most bang for your buck possible

I second that. On a tri-channel motherboard, 6GB is just fine unless you're using an application that would benefit from more RAM. Ask anyone on here, doing daily tasks and even gaming with a thing or two in the background, you're hard pressed to go over 2-2.5GB. Not to mention, an 800W PSU is overkill for that box, even if you're getting it to hold out for a rig or two.

I'm also assuming that computer would be built by a company, meaning they're going to charge you a pretty penny more than it would cost to get the parts and build it yourself, or have a friend/local business do it for you.

That's extortionate! $19 for more packaging? Another $19 for better cable management? $95 for a sound card, $19 for a firewire, $38 for extra USB stuff? Do you really need all that?

Probably listed like that as it's from Cyberpower.

They're terrible, my friend spent £2000 there like 5 months ago on a socket 775 PC with Dual nvidia gtx 295's... I told him not to , but whatever.

It's broken down about 7 times and took them like 2 weeks to sort it.

As others have said, there's nothing better than building your own rig. It'll feel like yours, save you money, and most likely be better than a prebuilt one.


Also don't understand this:

* VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 2GB 16X PCIe Video Card [+208] (Major Brand Powered by NVIDIA)
* VIDEO2: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 465 1GB 16X PCIe Video Card [+250] (Major Brand Powered by NVIDIA)

Unless your using one for physX? :S

IMHO I would back out of this and build something else.

^ x2. Hopefully he'll come back and read this. It's no skin off out backs, just sucks to see people get suckered into spending a sizable amount of money they don't have to.
