need some purchases suggestions...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
so i got an extra 300 to sepend on my pc, what i must get is a 850 watt + PSU, want i want to get is, either a duel+ sli mobo and a AM3 cooling fan for a OCing a 1090T, the thing is if i get a fan, ill need a larger case, as the one i use right now is small, and wont fit any worth while cooling for my processor, im good on RAM and fans and such

now, the thing is, im not a bing fan of internet shipping, and i buy all my products at this store

http://www.cbit.ca/?xid=33f928c4349b...de45164c85b128 and everything they sell is online for purchase, so products that are avilible there, would be great also.

something else iw as thinking, is i use a Western digital 7800RPM "black" HDD, would buying a SSHDD for my OS speed my comp up in any way? (if i get one of those, is it possible to set my current Sata HDD, to be a secondary so i dont loose all my games and such?)

thanks alot for your help

Is your RAM supposed to be rated 11-11-11-29?
Not that you should spend on new RAM, but you really should set your timings properly.

My say:
1. New motherboard. Don't overclock on that board, 4+1 unheatsinked power phaes (it's a motherboard limitation concerning CPU power delivery), overclocking with this board isn't entirely safe operation. Great choice = M4A79XTD EVO.
2. Which leaves plenty of room for an SSD
3. If your case isn't full ATX, buy a full ATX case. Plenty of inexpensive choices, i.e. this

what kind of ram do you have?
look it up at the mfg site and see what the timings and voltages should be
then set them in bios
11 is pretty high, most 1600s are closer to 7 or 9
