Yeah, it was a marketing gimmick by a few manufacturers, just to drive their engineers crazy. We will probably see it again with the new DDR4 coming out.

I, personally, would never mix them up no matter what anyone said.

You've got eyes on your machine. We do not. You know better than we do what it is that you need.

Well do yourself a favor and purchase a quality brand and please ask us if you need help sizing it's output. Just know that overkill here is always a welcomed thing. Higher wattage the more headroom and growth/upgrade potential later. Quality brands such as Thermaltake, Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, Coolermaster are highly recommended of course many others to consider.

Explain why you need to redo the bios? Was that from pulling or replacing the bios battery? Did you have any customized settings? If not then I would just set date and time and maybe opt for the quick boot option and just get back to the fun!
