Not sure about the 6400 PRO series. Most likely no Micron chips on those, so a bit limited overclocking wise. I'd go for the Crucial kit I suggested. Good stuff!

Wouldn't a warranty be voided if you OC, and mess around with it?

Seems to me it would be voided....

Apparently they are D9DQW's, not sure though. Take a look at the link in my sig for the ramlist... Oh thats right, Corsiar screwed the pooch and forgot to tell us of the promos...

Yeah.... Corsair has not been nice to us lately. I'd stay away from them.

Well, officially warranty is voided in any case when you overclock (I think eVGA does give warranty, and probably the RAM manufacturers also).

And who will ever find out you overclocked it? (as long your CPU is not toasted crispy that is)

You are correct about the speed differences between the Raptors and RAID0 with SATA II drives. Given that it's easy to swing either way, I'd prefer the SATA II's, since it's cheaper, especially in terms of cost per GB.

Just curious: which state do you live in? This matters a great deal when shopping online. When I buy from Tigerdirect for example, I'd have to pay sales tax, since they have shops in Illinois. However, with Newegg, I don't pay sales tax!
I'm in NY, so this custom build stuff is becoming more attractive as I get more and more info from you guys. No tax? That's sound nice to me!

So the cables are all included with the components, ok. That means my initial estimate of $200 for cables, cords, and a case was a bit too much. I can probably shave off another $75 and still manage to get a decent case for $125. Although the Thermaltake ArmorSeries case you mentioned is up there at $180. That thing looks like it's built for world war 3. Is it bullet proof? I don't plan on going off-roading with my PC in the back seat, so I may settle for something a bit less intimidating

That Armor is indeed likely to be bulletproof

With the weight to match

A really nice case on a budget is this Coolermaster:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119068 $44.99

It's cheap, reasonbly well built, and enough room.

alternatively,
Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel $139.99
Seems nice also. Reviews on it are a little mixed.

And indeed: no sales tax when you buy at Newegg!
