The Intel one is more reliable, haven't checked how it performs and if it beats the Corsair one, but won't be a bad choice.

What will the rig be used for??
Because I'm thinking go 8GB of Ram, and spend the money saved on better GPU!
Plus, do you need HT?

why 16GB Ram...............do you work on something very demanding

if it is for gaming or regular home usage a 8GB (or even 4GB) ram are enough

i agree with ACHILEE5 no need for the 16GB Ram , and save the money for better GPU , or maybe a dedicated sound card

I have the Intel 510 series, and it's fast as hell! Love it.
Plus as said, it's extremely reliable.

I think you may want to bring the SSD debate up in the SSD section of these forums. There may be people who know a little more about the stuff. It gets pretty complicated but I know that board has a Marvell SATA 6GB/s controller which I believe (don't quote me on this) may bottleneck both drives to similar read speeds. However, the Intel SSD's write speeds are slow enough that the Cosair may beat it slightly when it comes to writing.

I'm really no pro on this topic at all so like I said ask around in the SSD section. But I do know that the marvell controller will not let you get near the advertised speeds for the SSDs... trust me I learned that the hard way.

Thanks for the info, I have already decided i go for the Corsair, save me some money and buy a Asus HD6870 card so that i also have a new card.

P67 supports sata 6G natively. It supports two. However, on the boards that have four sata 6G ports, two of them are running on a third party chip and the other two are running on the P67 chipset itself.

Why not get this RAM? It may be cheaper...it is $20 for me. G.SKILL F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL

Why are you going for the Deluxe version of that mobo and p67? You can easily save some money and get a P8Z68-V LE, P8Z68-V, P8Z68-V PRO for cheaper that can allow you to use Lucid Virtu to help with video encoding and a few other things.

Also look into the Crucial M4...I got the 64GB one for my dad, its great. Also the crucial M4 and the intel 510 are the most reliable SSD's atm as far as I know.

Finally...a nvidia card may be a better choice for 3d work b/c a lot of the programs for 3d and video can take advantage of the cuda cores.
