The ram price is like double your GPU...

With that set-up I would do crossfire 5850s, and get some $105 G.Skills

30gb OCZ SSD for $100AR + Samsung F3 500gb sounds like a good idea for storage.

It looks good, but if it was me I would def invest in some cheaper ram! You can get 2x(2x2gb) for $180-200 and if all you will do is gaming that is even probably overkill. I run MW2 and Crysis just fine with just 2x2gb!

Take the money and invest in a 5870 for a gaming rig.

I got my 1600 7-8-7-24 ripjaws for $85, but I know it was a deal.. It should be $105 now, but why are the 1333 ones $110?

1600 requires OCing, 1200 (yeah 1200 not 1333) doesn't, if I decide to OC enough to need the quicker ram ill upgrade and sell these to a friend or something but thats w/e

Actually, im gonna be OCing so I might as well grab the 1600's, thanks

Just my opinion, but you could cut some cost by not getting windows 7 ultimate version...pro or home premium are really just as good.

I guess you may need something specific from the ultimate version though?

Edit: spelling
