Re: new prospective comp, need some help
Welcome to the Forums my man.
Alright, 1) Get a SATA II HDD, because you will be able to get 3.0GB/s instead 1.5GB/s for only a little more cash. Look for something with good seeking times and a large cache.
2) Get a better power supply. Maybe one from Enermax or OCZ and make sure it is a standard 24 pin. Also make sure it is SLI ready and SATA ready, because you want to keep your options open for SLI in the future, seeing as though your buying an SLI mobo.
3) You're short on a few things... Case, video card, and CD/DVD drive.
4) If you aren't going to to over clock your processor, get some RAM modules that will match your CPU HTT, which at stock is 200. So DDR400 is the way to go with that, seeing as though you will get the lowest timings and the fastest responses. I am pretty sure about this but I might be wrong.
