New Computer Build
I just want to thank you all for your help in this forum. I just want to post my computer build here and just get some feedback on a couple issues. I probably will answer my own questions but like to be corrected if I am wrong. Yes this is to be used for a family computer but I want to make sure I dont have to update it every month. And I may want to play games on it also.

Computer Build

Case- Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower

Power Supply- Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-620 620W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Ram-Kingston HyperX 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) unless the following works.

RE: New Computer Build
Everything is good. I recommend Core i5 2500K for overclocking though. Also the DDR3 2133MHz RipjawsX is better but a total waste of money. RAM speed is really not that important. Always go for more RAM over faster RAM.

RE: New Computer Build
Thank you Brian, I made the change to the PSU as I thought I had the K on it. And I ment to select the 16gb if ram to reflect the same amount but overlooked that. So I would be better to buy the faster ram correct? Assuming that it is the same amount lol.

RE: New Computer Build
Yes is better but it's a total waste of money because the difference in real life is negligible (1-2% performance difference).

RE: New Computer Build
Ok I see your point on the money. And if it isnt a big differance then I am not gonna worry about it.
