Alright, get rid of the patriot memory. I was thinking, since I had a little extra money I could beef up the memory a little, but I wasn't sure about using a different company/model and all. Thanks for warning me away.
Ok, Asus out. I wasn't sure about this myself. I'll look at an MSI, ABit, and DFI boards, but what do you think of this EPoX board?
Last, I've heard/read that seagate is the most reliable HDD out there, so I'll be sticking w/that. Especially since I'm buying OEM
Thanks guys, keep it coming
