If your spending $400 on an SSD go for an i7 2600K rather than the i5

If the op benches get the faster sticks if not stick with the slower ones, easy as that. I like to bench so I went with faster sticks.

As far as gaming goes, though, there's very little point in buying anything faster than 1,600MHz memory. Crysis couldn't care less about what memory you use, while Civ 5 ran equally as fast on the 1,600MHz kit at CL9 as the 2,133MHz at CL8. Only with the memory set to 1,333MHz did we see a slowdown, and even then by 1-3fps (around 5 per cent) at most.

Did op say he was benching? No. Does SB benefit all too much for the ram in real life situations? No. Easy as that. No need to sound condescending towards us.

For the umpteenth time, Ram speed on SB is negligible.

And rowey, u might as well tell him to buy 2 of everything. We need a budget OP./

Like I said if he benches minimal differences count. If not then get the 8gb, but I know that the speed of the ram will have more affect on games than the extra 4gb will. "Future proofing" with 8gb of ram for purely gaming is pointless. By the time we would even need that much we will have moved on to DDR4/5.

No point to this. Just cause one part of the build is highly expensive doesn't justify spending more money on another part just to have it. Save $100 and put it towards something that you actually might use.

Go for a 60GB SSD for OS and 2 WD 5000AAKS in raid
(I am an AAKS fan =p )
But that should do ya good for a good while. I see no point in having a PCIe SSD as they cost more than the standalones.
Also dump SATAIII and go SATAII, there isnt much of a performance increase you will see unless benching all the time.

I regularly sit higher than 4gb I dont see that my normal usage pattern would be that uncommon, browser with a fair few tabs open, media player, anti virus and a game isn't really all that much. A memory intensive game like civ 5 will gobble through ram think mines been as high as 4gig on its own.

60GB just seems to small for dual booting. I'm dual botting Win7 and Ubuntu.

I could maybe do it with an 80GB, but 60GB just too small..

And the PCIe SSD is 30 dollars more than the SATA SSD, and they are the same size. But the PCIe's seem to have higher speeds. Which I like.

EDIT: My mobo is NOT on the compatibility list for the PCIe SSD, and I have seen a couple forum threads about issues people have. I'm going to go with what is proven to work well, the Crucial.


And I have no reason to get an i7 over an i5. The i5 meets my needs and then some.

EDIT2:

My final HDD config is going to be:
128GB Crucial RealSSD for Boot Drive, and main programs.
2x500GB HDD's in RAID0 for programs and storage of files I access often (I own one, buying another)
1TB HDD for storage (Already owned)
2TB HDD for dedicated backing up. Will likely do this over eSATA as opposed to keeping inside the PC. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152245

EDIT3:
I'm wondering if I should just wait on the GTX 570 and keep the 9800GTX for now.

That 570 is expensive, and this whole build is approaching $1400. Taking that off would bring it down to about 1000.

Though, the 9800GTX would probably become the bottleneck in my system >.> But I could stand it for a month or two.. then maybe the 570 price will have dropped a bit.

Think it's worth waiting, or should I just plop down the money now?

The good thing about this is that the i5 has HD video.... When you overclock your i5, You overclock the i5 Video as well. This means that you'll get something like AMD's Hybrid tecnology. But with the benefits of being able to overclocking it. I think this is a worth waiting addon to your rig

EDIT: Besides its gonna be able to support Ivy Bridge with Bios update in the future.. And I almost forgot. HDD info wil be cached on SSD so you can use the speed benefit from SSD and using the HDD as storage.

Here is a link to the Source

If he/she is getting a GFX card like that then why would he/she care about integrated graphics?
