First Build (BFG Nforce 4 Ultra)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So this is my first build, I'm fairly knowledgeable when it comes to computer parts. But when it comes to building and choosing the right componets im
I was going to go with the ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe but I couldn't get it so I went with this board. And I'm going with a 430W Antec PSU. And as far as the processor goes I will either get a 3500+ or 3700+ And a 6600 GT OC for the VC
I'm still confused on what kind of RAM I should get for this board.

Any feedback is appreciated

I've heard G.Skill offer a good performance/value ratio when it comes to RAM.

Umm, can you be a little more specific when you say that you went with "this board"?? lol As far as choosing between the 3500 and the 3700, get the 3700 if you can afford it.

2225 timing is the best you can get for pc3200, the higher up in speed you go the looser the timings... but yes 2-2-2-5 is great!
