the corsair XMS @ 800mhz is nice for aroudn 275 i think? 2gb @ 1gig x2

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145168 oooorr

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145034

both are good sets of ram, and for the money you are already spending, you might as well go with two sets, which are paired, and get 4 gigs, the board will support it. Looks like a great setup..good luck with all that space...lol *cough* pr0n *cough*

why SLi memory? You dont really need it as most non-SLi memory performs better than SLi certified memory. So....SLi memory is just a gimmick to try to lure people into spending more money. So...with that said, I would get Buffalo Firestix. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820150054
And, you can do MUCH better with the psu for 270 bucks. http://www.us.ncix.com/products/inde...y%20Technology
Sure, its a little pricey, but the quality is MUCH MUCH better than that Thermaltake stuff.

just a question..but why would people need lots of hard drive space? 300GB should be enough for anyone...maybe 500GB.
