ASUS Sabertooth 55i (i like the mil theme, prolly cause i'm in the army)
8gb g-skills ripjaw DDR3 1600
corsair H50 (with pull/case/shroud/rad/push)
Win 7 and a few fans,cables, cathode
Question is what to do about storage with the remaining $350ish
would like a good amount of storage cause I put lots of games and programs on my pc but also would like to start a digital library
right now i'm looking at a 2tb WD green for storage/backup and a 640gb black for os programs/ misc what do you all think?
Im not a hardware professional but my opinion:
I would remove 4gb of RAM, don't think you'll need more than that for gaming at least for a year. And then spend the money you took OFF those 4gb on either a SSD ( Solid State Drive - Awesome for gaming ) of 120gb or so and rest a 1TB WD Caviar Black or the 2TB you chose
Thats'w hat I would do, maybe its not best option but I wouldnt go for 8gb of ram at least my self dont think its neccesary for gaming yet.
