it's time you can stop bragging about your system

sure PCP&C make the best PSU's (other than the custom made ones probably), but not many people have the money to dump on a toy like that

DIABLOII - I'm not bragging about my system. I'm simply taking about the best of the best. If I can afford it, which I can, it's because I have a good job, make good money and like expensive toys.

There's no harm in that is there?

Just because someone spends a bunch of time surfing the internet looking at low prices on high-end PC components, doesn't make them know a lot about hardware.

"I talk about stuff that i either "HAVE" or "HAVE WORKED WITH"

Half the stuff he says is crap he bases it all on opinion. Opinions are like A-holes, everyone has one and they all stink!

of course it's the best of the best

and having a good job gets you the best of the best

but not everyone has a good job; some of us here might be students or work at mcdonalds (no offense @ anyone that works there) and can't afford $200 psu's

also, i'm wondering why you didn't get the G. SKill LA's?

the LA's are the best of the best, and you can easily afford it (it's like $40 more than the corsair)

btw, i don't even surf the internet for low prices on hardware; the last time i did that was for a monitor few weeks ago

i read reviews and people's opinions and the hardware i suggest are always the ones that are recommended by many people

Which G-Skills are you talking about? The $180? or $265?
I happen to like Corsair, i've always had them and have always had great experiences with them. I choose the XMS3200XLPRO's because they have 2.2.2.5 timings, have great OCin' potiental, and have to admit i really like the 18LED activity lights that freakin' go crazy... It's a nice touch to a SOLID set of Modules.

I was looking at the G-skills... But i believe they were like 265+... I think i made the right choice.

DIABLOII do you have the G-Skills?

nope, i don't have G skill's

but seeing that every extreme overclocker over at xtremesystems have G. skill ram, it's pretty obvious they are the best OCer (btw, i'm talking about the $270~ ones)

what fsb do you have your corsair ram at

G.Skills are widely considered to be the best OCing RAM, along with OCZ Platinum. As for PCP&C, yea they are nice, but i have never heard of an antec, thermaltake, or OCZ ever being too crappy.

Mine has Oc'd to 435 core on air. You heard wrong.

$200 for a card that doesn't even sound as good as a $90 m-audio?
It's ~$100, not $200. m-audio has the revolution 7.1 which is comparable in price and features to the audigy 2. If you read the reviews, they go both ways.
