For ram, get either 2x2GB or 2x4GB sticks to run in dual channel.
The 3x2GB is intended for intels 1366 boards to run in triple channel.

You should get another burner instead if you need to have 2 optical drives. It will be able to read/write. While the Disc Drive can only read.

My addition is get a different board. The 790 is a bit old, and the 890/880 have the usb3 connectors.

Its only bout $20 bucks..

Theres also a xfx 5830 on for 139 after mir too which is phenominal.... though the 5770 isn't bad either, especially for $125

My opinion is that he should get something better than either of those gpu's if he's getting such a high end cpu. At least a 6870 I think.

Why?? The 460 and 5830 are near the top of the line. The x6 isn't that great compared to a i7 950 or higher. Sure its 6 reasl cores, but its an economical 6 core.

For most people the acheivable frame rates from theses 2 cards are very acceptable. Plus with gpus progressing as they do, its the cheapest thing to keep a system updated.

Oh, and you do realize a 5830 and 6870 have near the same specs with the 6870 being 60mhz faster.

^ a 6870 has a lot more on a 5830 than just a clock speed increase (i mean actual fps not specs). it's definitely faster than a 460 or 5830.

Yha your right...... I was thinking off when i post that. AMD lowered the level, but still got a sub level up..

Its should be around a 5850 not a 5830....
