The one you listed is $560 and $530 less rebate for two. I'm already over budget by about 200$. The price in the wishlist doesn't include the combo discount and the $30 coupon code. that's $30 less, also rebates are $110 in rebates plus some parts I'm getting from tiger direct in which live.com gives me a 10% discount(in 5 months granted) so that's $87 less about. so in total that price that you see is about $230 less. But still overbudget for me. I can take some more hits but not $80
My question also still stands, would I be able to OC the CPU to at least 3GHz with this build?
Here is a current thread for you to read on 12GB vs 6GB: http://www.overclock.net/intel-memor...s-12gb-i7.html
I'm not sure about the RAM timings question, but if you ask it there I'm sure someone will clarify.
As far as the video card I listed, the XFX Black Edition GTX 260, the price after rebate from Newegg is $249. Two would be $500 after rebate. Where did you get the 560 and 530 figures you listed above?
Here is the link again.
If you click on "price in cart" it shows $279.99, then after $30 rebate they are $249.99.
