Really they won't fit my noctua? Hmm I just selected them on the site Pcpartpicker.com and had so many good ratings I went like hey these seem good and even have heat spreaders, good reviews on them too so. Ah well thank you so much for pointing that out to me mate.
So basically I don't need heat spreaders at all then? I don't need to worry about Ram overheating or anything?
How are the low profile ram called of this corsair pair?
Again thanks for pointing out you saved me on quite a few £

Edit: by the way for gaming purposes 8 ram was enough right? Is that 8 ram overclocked or unoverclocked wich is enough? Eitherway 16gb ram not OC'ed will be enough I think.

Memory doesn't need cooling, they don't get hot. It's just for aesthetics. These are the low profile ones, same thing, just a different heatspreader.

4x4

2x8
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233280

I would opt for the 4x4 out of the corsair pairs since the 2x8 set is at CL10, the 4x4 is at CL9. Not a huge difference but worth noting. If you want 2x8 @ CL9 look into the crucial balistix sets.

While the 4x4 look perfect, I can't find it on the site pcpartpicker.com
I'll be buying my parts in the UK and ship it to Belgium.
The site has prices for all shops in the uk if its not in the list they don't sell it in the uk. frown.gif

Edit: Oh wait I found it without the "no heat spreader" filter, but when I click on the product it says it has a heat filter BUT on the picture its a smalle corsair RAM like I see on newegg.. weird.

Guys, out of YOUR personal experience if you ever got a 120hz screen. Did you see a BIG difference? Or was 60 fps just fine for gaming?
As of now I have no problem gaming with my old pc It's just it cannot handle big games, nor big resolutions.
I haven't noticed blur or anything yet when playing action games.. or is this just me?
What do you guys think?
As of now I think I might go with an IPS monitor.
Here's perhaps a dumb question but you've got 1920x1080 and 1200 right? Whats the second number stand for ?
You've also got 2560x1440 and 1600. So is this the height of the screen in pixels or? Is this just a mere detail ?
Like is there much difference between 1080p and 1200p?

120hz is really for 3D IMO. You cant see the difference between 60 and 120hz unless you really tried hard, and even then....

The resolution is the horizontal pixel count x the vertical pixel count.

The bigger the numbers, the more pixels you have (but this does not necessarily mean its a bigger screen).

I see so it's basically the number of details that will be displayed more and sharper screen.
Thank you alot for the feedback guys! Really apreciate it! thumb.gif
Just a question here I'll go for an IPS panel so... is there much difference between the 1440p and 1600p? It's just the height that differs not horizontal so are games like still in the same "quality" but not as detailed horizontal or how does it work?

I'm pretty sure one is a 16:9 aspect ratio and one is a 16:10.

I, personally, have no prefrence after using both.

Honestly, I would just look at Newegg (or wherever you buy your stuff from) see what is on sale then go from there. A good IPS panel with a big resolution is going to be at least $500 on a good day.

The buzz term 1080p when talking about screen quality is referring to the 16:9 aspect ratio which is common to HD output from TV signals and encoded video media like DVD/Blu Ray. When you're talking about resolutions it's a measure of how many lines are displayed. For example 1920x1080 is a fairly common resolution in 24" monitors these days which is showing 1920 lines across the screen if the line runs top to bottom eg. ||||| and then1080 lines vertical or a stack of lines running across the screen and counting top to bottom like =. Higher resolutions can mean more details and a sharper image because your fitting in more visual data on the screen. Another resolution you're likely to see on 24" monitors is 1920x1200 which is 16:10.

I've recently switched form a pair of 1920x1080 screens to 1920x1200 screens and not only does my text look a bit sharper but I can see more of my large word docs or spreadsheets without having to scroll. Is the extra 120 lines worth the extra cost? Depends on what you need and find optimal. I'm planning on jumping to something x1200 when I get my 24" screen after the first of the year.

What will be the impact of that resolution change in gaming? I'm not sure as I haven't gamed on that resolution in a long time, since my 1600x1200 screen cashed out some time ago. I hope this helps make it a bit more clear for you.

Remember, he is talking about IPS panels with 2560x1440 and 2560x1600 resolutions. I believe one of those is 16:9 and one is 16:10.
