Too bad Xion PSUs can't perform as well as they look. Go for the ones that Ownage suggested. All of them perform VERY nicely, way better than that Xion one.

OK, let me edit my post. I thought at that price, I couldn't miss. I can't put Ownage's PSU in there, because the price is Canadian. That would fit if I was buying, but I'll go the old fashion way to go to the store.

Ok just ordered this RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145034 and its all charged to my card so i cant change it. then i saw this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...size=10&Page=3 Cheaper and beter timing. Will i really see a difference in the performance between these two sets of RAM. i heard only the first two numbers count in gaming.

I doubt you'll see any difference unless you run a benchmark. At any rate I'd prefer the Corsair RAM over GSkill anyways. I've just had better luck with Corsair.

you can run those sticks at 4-4-4-12 and even 3-3-3-9 with a slight underclock but a data could easily rate them at 4-4-4-12 800mhz and for the price there a steal. too bad there is no stock until the first. guess there just that good

Well.. just got my Power Supply today, i guess i didnt look at the ad real carefully i got a lower end model. http://www.driverheaven.net/reviews/...600W/index.htm instead of the Supernova i thought i was getting. Its not modular either . So are these ratings still good enough to power my hardware effectively?

I've never dealt with Xion power supplies. And I don't think I ever will. You can always try it.

Haha, at least it'll be better than my experiences with Powmax.
