That's a pretty decent price on that RAM. Not too shabby of a find. The GSkill Ripjaw DDR3-1600 2x4GB kit is usually on sale for $75 though, so I'd wait for that sale and grab those instead.

would you say these are better?

why?

the corsair are out of stock so i have time to reconsider ...

Make sure you get the RipJaw X not the regular RipJaws. The RipJaw X are 1.5V which are the same as the Corsair's while the regular RipJaws are 1.6V. Other than that they are just pretty much the same thing, just different brands. G.Skills are starting to make a good name for themselves as reliable and competitive product to the bigger brands like Corsair and Kingston.

No... you won't see a huge difference, and hard drives don't require much power and SSDs don't use any power at all. Only your CPU and GPU requires power. What you want instead is a good reliable psu that can handle good loads power demands so when say you are folding, gaming, or benchmarking your computer won't fry and die on you. PSU is important, but the system you listed even with SLI GTX 580 won't require a Gold rating. Its nice to have but not 100% necessary. As others have said get a good reliable psu from $100-150 is all you need. Remember your computer will probably never get to 100% load even if its on 24/7 unless you 'want' to push it manually ex. gaming or folding or benchmarking.

Like for me my computer is on like 15 hrs a day and it never gets to over 20% load unless I choose to game. My system when at 100% load is like <500 watts. So a psu of 620 watts for me is enough as my psu is a proven stable psu that gives continuous power even at high load demands. Hope this has clear up some for you

Something like this psu is good enough. Silver Certified and have all the connectors you need. With rebates its only $120. The 12V rail is rated at 744 watts!!!

Just find yourself any 1.5v RAM that's rated at at LEAST DDR3-1600, 9-9-9-24 timings, and 2x4GB. GSkill Jipjaw X's are nice, and they have great customer service. Corsair is usually more expensive, but just as good. Kingston Hyper X....there's tons of good RAM out there. Just make sure its the specifications I stated above, and you'll be fine.

this may be as stupid question, but what does the timings mean?

in reference to these GSkill RAM

Timings = tighter is better (smaller numbers). 9-10-9-28 is pretty well standard for an 1866 kit. That's what mine pull off. Mine are 9-9-9-24 at 1600 for reference.

Realistically though (real world performance), you won't notice a bit of difference from 1600 @ 9-9-9-24, or 2133 @ the same timings (or even tighter). The only time timings make a difference with the Sandy Bridge setups is if you're into benchmarking.
