How good is the on board video?
Well, it never hurts to have a system that you'll be able to overclock in the future, if you wanted to. It isn't too scary with all the folks around here to help you out. The rig in my signature was my first one as well.
I've never used the on board video, as I use my HD6850 - you're going to have a 6850 in your rig as well, right?
Also, I just poked around in the AMD Memory forum and saw these two sets of RAM recommended a couple times:G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB CL7
I have the second one in my dedicated folding rig and I am happy with them.
edit: People used to always recommend the Spinpoint F3
on here, but then Samsung's hard drive department was annexed by Seagate or something, so I don't know if that changed anything.Edited by falconkaji - 6/14/11 at 7:51pm
