Old gaming rig died last year, found out it was the ram. Updated the ram. Now computer DIED again. Think it is the MB. About 14 months ago I added a new Video Card to nurse the old girl along.
The rig is now 3 years old. I am a newbie and have not kept up with all the advance in chips, GPUs, ram...etc
The only thing I am set on is case and CPU cooler:
Corsair Obsidian Series 800D CC800DW Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

I've never done any Raid on my harddrives. In the past I have just has two single HD. I want 1TB on main HD and 1TB on my back up bulk storage HD. Is doing RAID stuff hard? I have two external HD that I back up pictues and MP3. Plus, I do MOZY back up.
So I need a lot of help. Is sata III main stream now? USB 3.0??
And I would like all my stuff from NewEgg.
