Rig upgrade for live streaming ps3

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
The new parts I want to purchase:
CPU: Intel 3930k
CPU Cooling: Corsair H100
Mobo: Asus RIVE
Ram: ??? I want 16gb of great ram for overclocking. Some people say dual channel, other people say quad channel??

Re-using these parts:
GPU: Sapphire 5770
PSU Corsair TX550
Case: HAF 932
HD: 128gb Crucial m4 + 2x Western Digital Caviar Blacks (not in raid)

I will upgrade the GPU at a later date.
I am using my machine for live streaming my PS3 with a video capture card and XSplit.
I also use a PS2 emulator on my PC for live streaming once in a while too.
I am not big into computer games at the moment.

So my questions would be...
1) is that PSU okay to use with the new setup? I'd like to overclock my cpu as high as I can without overvolting.

2) Does the ram HAVE to be a quad channel kit? or is a dual channel kit okay?

3) What drives would you recommend for video storage? Are 3tb caviar greens okay?

Ram I am considering:

http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX37137 (1 of these kits)

I'm beginning to think I scared people away by saying "live streaming" in the thread title.
That was simply added to outline why I'm upgrading to a hex core to begin with...

That PSU should be good enough for the system you want, although depending on what GPU you are going to use, it may still fall short.

For a Core i7 3930k, you want quad channel memory.

Caviar Greens make excellent storage drives, I get about 90mb/s on my 2TB Caviar Green.

I see, so two a dual channel kits would not run properly in a quad channel board?
