Think I just thought of a better way to put my question, what downsides do you see to buying an extreme 6 - over something else? Would the voltages be more stable for example on a ASUS pro?

don't really want to just completely pay for things I wont really use. I'm a broke college kid xD .... spending like 2k+ on a rig... let me know if you think its warrant the cost and I'll happily drop cash though
- was kinda expecting someone to suggest dropping from the PSU before ram though /shrug.
if gskill really is that much nicer of mushkin
G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600, 1.5V, 9-9-9-24 - its 49$ - http://goo.gl/XGmkb - apparently I like black ram

Nah, there are many different choices you can make. IMO there is hardly ever a reason to get top of the line. If I were to make suggestions to you it would mostly look like the rig in my sig.

Only changes would be, 680 or 2.
Z77 mobo. Same make and model. There is a EVGA z77 board that is awesome, but it is like 355 bucks!!! For you, I would stay in the 250 to 300 range. I know asrock makes decent boards and has a z77 board. I have a sour taste in my mouth with ASUS and their customer support, so I cannot recommend them at this time. However, they do a ROG z77 board that looks really cool.

For the other parts.
Ram--> Corsair and Kingston are the best IMO. However, I have found that you get a good set of the G.skill snipers or ripjaws and they work really well. Better to save the money in that dept.
CPU-->for now get a cheap i3 or i5 until ivy is out and they release their unlocked cpu line. Unless it is out by the time you order.
PSU--> this is one thing that you cannot skimp on. With what you are saying you want to build I would do at least a good corsair or sea sonic 850 PSU. I would go with 1000watt or more, but I like to make sure I will be good in the future. 850 should be okay. I agree with your choice of the ax850.

As far as stability goes they would be virtually the same, the higher end boards will probably have higher stability at higher overclocks but what you are paying more for is extra features, some of which you probably won't use. That being said, I'm probably not going to run a 5.0 ghz overclock regardless of the board, so a lower end board will suffice.

Think I've pretty much got my core build set now - would love to maybe get a monitor suggestion or two - still haven't heard much in the line of 7970 boards, really leaning toward the 680 though anyway. (7970 with reference as I'll be taking off the plate to WC, in case anyone missed my earlier build list).

Looking for 22-26inch monitor, very nice contrast ratio - 300ish or less is kinda what I'm thinking, however feel free to talk me into saving money - 1080p or 1200p. Will eventually replace with a 1440p or 1600p monitor down the line - and use the original for web / vent ect.

Come tomorrow I'll probably post out my ideas on the loop and I can hopefully get some great feedback on that as well!

(please still feel free to nitpick ANYTHING)

Would you be better off going for a higher speed or lower latency? Still looking for more feedback!biggrin.gif

They have the vengance ones that are lowe profile, cheap, and they perform well, i have put them in a few builds for other people.

if not corsair i have purchased mushkin twice with no hiccups,

i would recommend lower latency imo, but tbh you would NEVER EVER know the difference
Because in theory if you had a lower frequency than latency your low latency would bottleneck the frequency because the latency would delay down at its own rate regaurless of how high the frequency is.
if that makes sense. but really not many companies are that stupid to make thier ram like that, they would just be slower or faster all together.
