Yeah, I'm liking that setup Very much so.

One thing I especially like, being a muscian is those Logitech speakers... I really want a set of them, but there rather expensive, for a guy with no money

I don't know much about the Athlon 64 X2 but know its a good processor, and the RAM also looks good, and with games, this computer should have no problems what so ever with that great graphics card

Great build!

Hmm, those would have better timings probably, but I have GeIL ram, and I can't say i'm dissapointed with it. Though, I haven't done much, if any overclocking to test it.

I looked into Kingston HyperX which is very good RAM, but the DFI is a board that has its likings, and Geil gets along with it well. Corsair.. HAHHAHAH!! That RAM.. is so.. CHEAPO... Corsair RAM is manufactured on a process that is literally ANTIQUE, and their latency timings are absurdly high along with heat production on MOST models. Sorry, I have to disagree there, Geil is really leading the way right now, especially with their new TCCD contruction theoreticals and principles.

Yeah, and Geil aren't really that expensive either, and I have 1GB in my PC. Completely stable RAM, so I can't really say anything about the make thats bad at the moment.

Good luck on the build, and tell us how it runs!
