^This.
CF (or SLI for that matter) is a far, far better deal than 8GB ram you most likely will never use. I'm having a hard time even using 50% of my 8GB.....

That's right.

You'd have to have Crysis 1 and Crysis 2 working at the same time just to break 5GB.

Another 8GB of RAM only cost me $50...it was worth it IMHO, plus I do heavy video and audio editing/mixing so I've used up to 14GB RAM before...I'll see if I can't get a screenshot. It's definitely NOT a waste of money...maybe to some it is, but to others...we actually use it

@OP: The Rasa will work with the Antec 900 but you will have to mount the radiator out back. I plan on picking up the RX240 and running it on the back of my Stacker 830 as well. Have a look here: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-rs-rx120.html it is a good place to start with knowledge on this particular kit.

By nice coolant I hope you meant distilled water

Which is a point, you will want a silver killcoil for your loop too. (you could use biocide but I have found it ineffective in the past, I now use both biocide and killcoils in my loops).

The tubing you get with it is fine though, you wont see any real performance change from switching it for a different size, it's pure aesthetic.

Unless you're video editing...


While I get people's want to help, not everybody only plays games lol and it's a little off topic

I'm using almost 6GB of my 12GB right now, and I don't have any games or big programs like Photoshop open (though I normally do). 8GB is probably enough for most people, but not everyone. It's not for me.

this system is just basically for kicking ass an sounding cool. I do a lot with videos. Plus I'm a network engineer I like fast computers... also I might get into RIFT when its all completed. I used to be a fan of SWG. if anyone knows what that was.

Firefox is using the largest chunk at just over 2GB, but that's with 215 tabs open currently (I think 100 of them are WC related) and a bunch of smaller apps for stuff. I generally do not close something once I open it till I restart, which is usually once a month for windows updates. I am a power user to the fullest extent of the meaning!
