this RAM will be slightly faster because it has lower timings: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227478

looks good, i would beef up the power to 750w for expansion and stability. What cooler are you putting on your CPU and what additional fans in the case? there an awful lot of heat to get rid of here. My GC overheated without 2 x120mm additional case fans. Maybe a full size tower would be better.

why would he need a CPU fan? if you're not overclocking then its a waste of money.

What, are you tell me you have no heat extraction on your processor, hes not building a crappy laptop here its a full system and the core will not start without a CPU heatsink and will shut off or melt if its not good enough.

Most processors are sold with a stock heatsink. Yes, they need a heatsink or they will fry, but a stock heatsink is good enough if you don't OC.

Nice specs, similar to mine! The Zulman is not a bog standard heatsink!! looks good to. For a few Quid I would upgrade toZulman.
Anyway thanks but the point i was making was the other guy was suggesting no cooling for the CPU.....boom

I never said mine was powerful. And believe me, that Celeron D is only a book-holder so to speak. I am going to upgrade as soon as I can afford it.

The only reason I'm complaining about what you said is that you said your two systems very similar, but they are far from similar in every way.
