You can, you just need to decide if you want to spend that type of money on a graphics card

Lol... Yeah, I didn't post pics of the front because nothing there had changed since the last time.

I still need to finish wiring up my switches while I have time, before I got to college and am busy.....

Thanks! Can't wait to see that switch panel when it's done.. Last I saw it's already looking pretty good..

Just a small tip; if you're planning to put that on your current AMD rig, AMD don't do tri-channel (not sure if or when they will), so for the sake of keeping dual channel, you'll need an even number of RAM sticks on your board (2 or 4).

Janno,

You need to be aware that pparks is right when he says....

Seeing that the price seems to be about the same for 12gig of either the 1866 Dominator GT or the 1600 Dominator, I'd say get the GT's, as they are more of a performance module.

Personally I would save myself some money by going with either of these these....

CORSAIR CMG6GX3M3A1600C7 6GB PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) Triple Channel Memory Retail at ZipZoomfly

Amazon.com: Corsair TR3X6G1600C7D Dominator 6 GB PC3-12800 1600 MHz 240-pin Triple Channel Core i7 DDR3 Memory Kit:

You'll get more performance due to the lower CAS speed. 7-7-7 vs 8-8-8.

If you have 12gig of 8-8-8 or 6gig of 7-7-7, I think the 7's win out. Even If the 12gig of 8's win, it's not something you're going to notice over the 6gig of 7's.

Again, my two cents
so, your saying that if i spend 150,- on a OCZ Platinum XTC 6 GB, PC3-12800, 1600 MHz, 7, Non-ECC, Kit Of 3

i would be better of then spending 400 on 12GB?

that would be great news, that means my rig is coming to completion a whole lot faster then i thought...

i still have 1 question, thanks to all the response i`ve gotten here (sometimes...

i picked my current SSD ( Crucial RealSSD C300 64 GB, S-ATA 600, 70 Mb's, 355 MB/s ) because of the SATAIII, but is this even nessecary?

would i need the speed provided by SATAIII, or is my rig not able to use the potential this SSD gives in terms of speed ?

i see the read speed of 355 MB/s, so i`m thinking that a SATAII gives 3Gb/s, that should be sufficient

i havent bought a ssd yet, and also havent bought the RAM yet (with the discussion on sevenforums in mind i waited) so your advise on RAM has been great so far, now only for my ssd...

i`m just glad the rest of my rig doesnt get to much comments, because i have it already here ready for construction...

@ janno

Yes, I'm saying you can save a little money and gain a little performance by going with 6gig of faster timed memory (7-7-7) as opposed to 12gig of slower timed memory 8-8-8.

I believe the performance difference would be so minimal that it wouldn't be worth the extra cost.

That's my opinion.

PS... The other thing you could do is take that extra $200 dollars you were going to spend on that 12gig of Dominator GT RAM and put it towards a bigger SSD drive. That's your transfer speeds there

ok, but what`s the advantage in speed with a bigger SSD?

my current choice of SSD has a read speed of 335 MB/s, and a write speed of 70MB/s.

an increase in read speed will set me back a extra €600,-, and i dont think i need a increase in write speed... i could be wrong ofcourse...

i still need an answer on my question concerning the speed of my SSD in relation to the options my MoBo is giving me (this being SATAIII)

Or you could get a second 64GB SSD and set up RAID0 (striping)... That should give you an awesome speed boost.
