Those that are on there is the good ones if you find one that is not then its either brand new or just crap

There is a very good deal going on for the Rosewill Tachyon Series 650 watts model its 42% off over at newegg so its the same price as the Rosewill Capstone-M 650 watts PSU

Thank you for the suggestion on the PSU, I will certainly consider it.

To the OP, your build is very solid thus far. I recommened this RAM kit: G.Skill CAS 7 1600MHz 8GB kit.

If you are looking for Low Profile, then I recommend this: Corsair LP CAS 9 1866MHz 8GB kit. (Colors include white, red, black, blue--so you choose biggrin.gif)

I suggest only 8GB since no one really needs more than 8GB, unless you plan on using RAMDisk.
I was looking at a Ram disk, just don't get the whole idea behind it? Isn't the data erased once the computer is shut off?

I looked at the SG09, but it's not as aesthetically pleasing as the FT03 to me.

Thanks again for all the responses, I appreciate it.

Yes and no. There are options in the settings. RAMDisk works as a Hard drive with super low latency and access times compared to actual disks. You can hold games, temp folders, and other programs like any other disk, of course you would want to click on the "save before shutdown."

I have decided on most of the other components except for the case. I'm currently looking at the Silverstone FT03, TJ08e, and Fractal Define Mini but can't decide on which one, or if I should go with an alternative.

I'm looking for cooling, portability and size as my main concerns.


Thanks
