I don't get what the difference in the memory is. I can see it's the numbers which is the voltage right? Normally I think the 4-4-4-12 is more expensive but I got a combo deal with it so it's cheaper but I'm not sure which one to buy.

Total ~$1750

All of the prices are in Canadian dollars and I'm just wondering about the RAM and what you guys think of my computer and whether or not all of the components are compatable with each other. Thanks in advance for your input Oh and the computer is primarily for gaming and other non-difficult tasks like music and school stuff.

Great choices. Finally someone who actually knows something about picking a decent PSU The Corsair HX620W is a very nice power supply.

Anyway, it looks like a great build. You're going to want the 4-4-4-12 RAM. Those are the latency timings. Basically, lower is better.

you got such nice things but maybe you should go for the 640 mb 8800gts or a 8800gtx that would be like the best thing.....but i love the build.

I have a 640mb GTS. I'm staying away from the GTX because I don't need to spend any more money than I am currently haha

You may want to think about going with a full tower case. Things are going to be really tight in that 900 case. 640 version with the dual 6 pin connectors are really close to the harddrive cage.

As freestyler said pick up the lower latecny 4,4,4,12 ram. I prefer G.Skill myself but Corsair is a good brand as well.

Personally I think you should buy the 64bit OEM version of Vista. You won't be limited in the future.

I have a 19" LCD and a standard $5 mouse. I need to keep under a strict $2000 and if I add a half-decent mouse I'll go over haha. So that can wait a week or two.
