$60 AR, you wouldn't notice a difference between that and a 460 if you're not gaming.
I think it has nothing to do with it's ability in games etc, Sure its a great card but tbh compared to a gtx 580 id say it was midrange, Not aimed at its ability but in comparison to the faster cards.

Thanks for the recommendation, drBlahMan. Wow they sure do overclock well. I wonder why they spec them so low then. Does all Kingston RAM OC this well. I saw these in 8GB I am looking for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820104173

Quite expensive for the lower specs but if they really do OC that well, they are something to consider. I see there are no user reviews on Newegg. Do you think they are new or maybe most are not buying 4GB sticks. There aren't many reviews for the G. Skill either.

Regarding the use of 3TB drives. Gigabyte with BIOS F6A says OK.
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...?pid=3646#bios

On Hitachi's web site it says you need the EFI BIOS to use 3TB as a boot drive.
http://www.hitachigst.com/internal-drives/above-2tb/

I assume that is no longer true though considering Gigabyte says it is fine.

That's the kit I"m running now.

I have no problem running my sticks at 2000mhz if I loosen the timings.

To the OP...

Most memory IC's are made by just a few suppliers. These suppliers distribute their products to Kingston, Gskill, Patriot, ect.

Elpida is generally considered the premier memory manufacturer. Specifically, the "HYPER" series from Elpida.

Since these are distributed to many different companies, sometimes it's difficult to identify who uses the premium IC's. The only way to truly tell, is to remove the heatspreader and look. This voids your warranty and sometimes destroys the ram.

You can spend a great deal of time tracking down these top-notch IC's.

The Kingston ram linked above (DDR3 1600 Hyper X with a CAS of 8) *IS* Elpida Hyper Memory. Yet, the seemingly identical DDR3 1600 Hyper X with a CAS of 9 *IS NOT*. To the eye they'd look identical. Their part number varies by only 1 digit.

Honestly, we're really splitting hairs here...

For more in-depth info you're better off going to the Memory area. xtremesystems.org also has a lot of good info.

Does anyone know why Newegg wouldn't have the new Gigabyte motherboards yet. I see them available at quite a few other places. Are they not officially released. Should I wait to order when they are "officially" released or go ahead and get one. One that has been around a while may need an updated BIOS but I can do that easily. Newer ones may come with the latest. Will they be released the same time the 2600K is on Jan. 9th?

I was just coming over here to see if you had seen this set as I just found it myself. 2000MHz CL9 sounds good as I figure I can drop CL to 8 or 7. Anyway, I think it's what I've settled on for now unless Mushkin shows back up.

Did you order memory already?
