Help to complete my build please

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So far i have a ..


case -thermaltake armorjr.
psu - corsair hx520
hdd - 2 seagate 250g sata
mobo- DFI lanparty DK p35


and i just ordered my cpu a few minutes ago. My e8400 should be here by Wed.
However i need help in completing my rig. I want to run Vista and plan on using 4 gigs of RAM, however i dont know which brand or speed? i guess it is? so i need some help with that and also i had planned on just getting a 8800gt but my budget hasnt stayed with the original plans and i see no reason for sticking to it on the gfx card as well so i guess i have around 300$ to spend in that department and need recommendations? Also i would like to learn to overclock this cpu so i am going to need a aftermarket cooling fan and heatsink any recommendations are welcome,as im not sure which will fit with this motherboard. Thanks for the help guys/gals.

I have OCZ vendetta 2 on that same board a tuniq tower will also fit but you need to mod the mounting bracket. A True will also fit. You can look at this thread http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...rs-thread.html people who have this board could recommend some things
