is sexy a rating?

EDIT: Just saw that you were looking for advice too. I would try buying a SSD if you have the money for one. Your computer will get noticeably faster with one and I can guarantee that you will like it! Go for the C300 if your mobo supports SATA 6GB/s. I have the C300 and let me tell you it is a freaking beast

Whats up with the two different Memory sets listed? If you insist on going with a single Hard drive, I'd suggest a Western Digital Caviar Black as they're some of the fastest drives. If you do decide to go the SSD route, you can often find 2TB Samsung Spinpoint F4's for $80 each which is a good storage drive from what I've seen and read.

Idk much about Raidmax PSU's, I'm a believer in Corsair PSU's and RAM so I stick with them. I'm also not a big fan of Thermaltake cases, I'd personally use the CM690II advanced over that case, just my opinions though!

Overall, I'd rate the build in the 7.5-8/10 range, but that build would last you for years to come! Have fun, I know I do!

What resolution are you planning on gaming at?

The highest my monitor supports! My computer monitor is 1440 X 900
the Mitsubishi 60 INCH DPL 1080P is unknown...

The RAM is a long story. My first build equaled a few issues which I though was compatibility issues with the RAM and MOBO. So I bought new ram--talent 2X 4gb 1333mhz. Come to find out, the RAM wasn't the issue it was the monitor. Therefore, had two sets of 8gb and there you have it 16Gigs of RAM.. LOL

When you use two sets of ram speeds, doesn't that just clock down your faster set to the speeds of the slower set?
post #7 of 24
Mixing performance RAM with generic RAM? (Assuming the 1333 RAM is 9-9-9 timings, if it's not do tell me) I have a feeling that's not going to bring out the best results. Especially with 4GB DIMM generic RAM.
