Sounds Good!

Do you mean that you will start to build this within an hour or do you mean that it will take you only one hour to build?

Nice build. But I would have added a 60GB SSD for the OS. Makes things really fast.

Not so sure about mixing the brand of memory and size of sticks, if you get any stability issues in the future that would be the 1st place I would look.

Apart from that looks good.

And yeah I agree with whs, a SSD is a great upgrade to go for in the future if you want to speed it up some.

I would have loved to, believe me but I was on a limited budget

Maybe in the future I might get an SSD. Also, so far no problems with the mixing of RAM. All is detected


Thank you all

Looks good. An SSD will benefit it though. And I'm not entirely sure what you need 12GB RAM for.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?
Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
