I hope the 5Gb of ram is a typo. 4Gb or 8Gb is what you will be looking at. 4Gb should do you fine.

No it's not, i had 1 spare GB of RAM from my old build. Unfortunatly my motherboard fried and now i only have 3 slots for my RAMs. Damnit Gigabytes what's up with the crappy motherboards

well AMD motherboards run best in dual channel so you need to use multiples of 2 when it comes to sticks of ram 4Gb is enough for most gamers. Unless you do video editing then go to 8Gb. Plus you need to use ram that have the same specs, for best performance (ie. timings and speed and capacity)

If you could provide links and/or prices it would help people make suggestions. I can almost promise this 1TB Samsung F3 for $50 shipped after promo code EMCKDJF27 is cheaper than that Western Digital, and it's quite a bit faster than their 5400 rpm Green HDD's. And obviously it has roughly 50% more space.

As others have suggested, you're probably better off using the 2x2GB set only, and leaving the 1GB stick as backup. Like they said, you'd force the system to run in single channel if you added the extra stick, and it's at least 2-3% faster in dual channel, some would say even better than that. Additionally, anytime you mix RAM, you have to run all of it at the same voltage, speeds, and timings. You didn't specify the modules you're using, but I would assume they have at least slightly different voltages and/or timings given that they are different sizes and therefore use different IC's. It's not a given, but likely. All RAM will have to run at the speed/timings of the weakest link, and if the weakest link is the 1GB module, you'll hurt performance even more.

The GTX 460 1GB is a nice choice. My GTX 465 is the rough equivalent, and I run all my games at 1920x1200 and full textures (4x AA, 16x AF) with no issues. Faster cards out there, but the 460 should be good enough for the next year or so and is a great value.

Which Seasonic PSU are you using? They're generally very high quality, but every brand has a wide variety of models. And what are you paying for it? You can probably get a better priceerformance ratio from a different brand, but I completely understand you not wanting to compromise on the PSU.

I haven't bought anything yet, but i changed my mind and decided to go with this instead:

CPU: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=10360BD5233
Fan/Heatsink: http://www.directcanada.com/product/?sku=11130AC8843
PSU: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=13220AC0017
RAM: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=11180BD8269
Mobo: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=10530BD3323

I'll wait until this CPU becomes outdated and then i'll buy the 1090T for 100$. I'm not planning on overclocking btw, i just bought this fan incase the stock one would be noisy. The PSU is a real deal , it's 80$ on Newegg and they're selling it for 30$.

get this ram

Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9AD3K2/4G 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-27 Dual Channel Memory Kit
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=12410BD5030

amd likes dual channel mode and its great for overclocking
best to run it at 1600 cl8-7-8-27


if you want the onboard video and a high wattage cpu, get this board
ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 DDR3 ATX AMD 880G SB850 2PCI-E16 PCI-E1 3PCI Radeon 4250 Motherboard
