Ok i need to know this fast:
Does this RAM kit is good ? CORSAIR VENGEANCE LOW PROFILE 2X4GB 1600MHZ, DDR3, CL(9-9-9-24), XMP

And about PSU:
Will this gonna have enough power to all parts? OCZ MODSTREAM 500W

Samsung 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 is much better RAM. It is lower profile, uses less voltage, runs cooler, can be overclocked higher and is $9 cheaper. Taken with a grain of salt, look at the end user reviews on Newegg. It gets a whopping 97% 5/5. Here's the 1500+ post thread discussing how awesome this Samsung RAM is. Only "problem" for most people is that it is only available in 4GB per stick, while some want 8GB per stick these days.

An AMD APU with a GT 430 graphics card (still using that?) can probably run on a 150W PSU. What are you paying for your PSU? Or is it from your old rig? BTW, why can't you keep using your CoolIt ECO from your old rig?

Umm i cant find at any local shot theese ram's from samsung smile.gif Its kinda strange to see even g-skill ram kits or gelid here in lithuania but no sammy low profile miracles....
Nah that GT 430 is going to be on sale and later ill add maybe 7770, PSU goinna be old one 500w with no 80+certification ( till i get paycheck) so i think it would be enough for first use smile.gif And about that nasty AIO eco... Im having now problems with it and that cooling solution is going for sale also with vga card, so for some time ill stick with stock cooler when my trinity comes and later ill add h80 or h100, did quite a good job with acrylic case drawings to fit both of them smile.gif
