Advice on $1500 Build - Page 2

post #11 of 13
At one time, when I still had money to buy things... I emailed a Mushkin representative, and he informed me that almost all of Mushkins products are manufactured in the US.

I emailed Corsair. Taiwan.

Crucial. "Thank you for contacting us. Our parent company, Micron Technology (micron.com), is in Boise, Idaho so many of our products originate in the US. However, Micron is a global company so some of the products originate outside of the US.
Crucial.com does sell products that are and are not made in the US."

If you live in the U.S and are into that thing, Crucial and Mushkin are partially US loyal companies manufacturing wise.

Good to know these days there's something to be said about buying American made in terms of keeping our own employed

combining it with the Asrock Extreme Gen4 mobo. But let us know what you guys think we should do cause we are open to all ideas. Also
please include SSD because that is crucial now a days lololol....
Thanks, Tcatcammando

SSD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226153

use 2500K instead of 2600K, their cpu performance is same in gaming; the mobo get the Z68 version for ssd caching if you decide to instal a hdd later; psu is ok since you can afford it; 7950 is ok; ram get the ripjaw X version which is more latest same capacity & speed or the mushkin blackline/ridgeline; for SSD I think get the latest 120 chronos version instead of callisto; for case get Corsair 300R; put a aftermarket cooler a decent CM hyper 212+ or evo would do
