I have the exact same OptiPlex 755 as Paul Thurrott. Purely confidence. Only mine has 4 GB of RAM, not 8.

Very Nice PC. I do like that case.

I have a question (again) about RAM..... DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)

I was looking at the Corsair Dominator Series... But it's not for me. Too pricey. I don't do much on my PC besides play BF2/AIM/Surfing/Porn.

Any advice??

Will be going into a eVGA 750i FTW Motherboard

Found a couple different brands. GSkill, OCZ, and Corsair (non-dominator series)

GSkill ($54.99):

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

GSkill ($59.99)

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

OCZ ($46.99):

Newegg.com - OCZ 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

OCZ Platinum ($62.99):

Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Corsair ($64.00 before rebate):

Newegg.com - CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

I've already posted my rig here :
Initial D World - Discussion Board / Forums -> Post pics/specs of your PC rig!

The next computer will probably be a Core i7... but I have no money :\

EDIT

If you start at page 1 at the link I gave, my post post with the pics are on page 21. Just scroll down on this page. I have the same nick and avatar over there so, just scroll down until you see my post

It only reads blu-ray though...

Anyway, BD-R are too expensive yet to consider buying a blu-ray burner.

BD - Read only
DVD - Burn/Read
CD - Burn/Read

Only a 5.1 to get now.

96accord,

For what you do, I would just go for the least expensive one. I'd say ddr2-800 wouldnt be too bad for it. If you don't need RAM in a hurry, keep watching slickdeals, newegg and woot. Some crazy deal may pop up. I got 4gb gskill ddr2-800 for free with my case purchase

Have you installed the 750i ftw? How you liking that noise?

Finally got off my lazy ass to take some pics. Behold! My homemade, jack-o-all-trades PC+theater version 1.5! Ver1.0 was basically the same with the Antec 300 case. This is the ABS Monolith case with the front door thrown away.

Sound system: onboard chip toslinked to Onkyo SR-506 receiver, 4x Energy C-100 & Energy C-C50 center for speakers. Yep, that big black box next to the receiver in the 5th pic is a subwoofer, the Elemental Designs A2-250.

Please excuse the terribad furniture and the use of speaker boxes as stands for receiver and speaker. I'm too chea... I mean environmental friendly to buy real stands! ^_^

Thanks for the info. I was purchasing a internal laptop harddrive for a customer's laptop that I am working on off of newegg so I hurried up and purchased the Corsair Dominators Series 2x2gb ram DDR2 1066. I figured what the hell.

The 750i is not installed yet. I am going to wait for the memory to come and do it all together. I understand that I can still install the board and then just install the memory when it comes in but NewEgg is quick and I will install the mobo and ram at the same time.

I want to get (2) more 120mm case fans tho.
