Both are sets of Dominator RAM, but which should I buy. Note the prices.

    Added the fact that I bought the HDDs.

    Ah crap. I am too used to FP's system of auto merging double posts.

    Class. I ordered my hard drives today.

    I originally was going to get number 1 but then found 2. But thinking of making it THE best makes me want number one. As said, I might get 1 and then buy a matching pair at a later date.

    To buy:
    Optical Drives

    Well, the significantly tighter timings should (theoretically) translate into a better o/c for #1. But if Ace got #2 and is happy with his o/c, you really can't go wrong there (I always like getting a product which has been given a *stamp* of approval by some one in the know). Nevertheless, I voted for #1. Just make sure you read some reviews of people who bought #1 before you get it, you don't want to find out it is a lemon (I doubt that would happen: Corsair is a trusted RAM supplier).

    tigher timings? For amd maybe, but intel never seemed to mind looser timings...

    I voted #2 b/c they are similar and its $100 less. It'd be good enough for me.

    good CPU i have almost same xcept that i have the 3.0 model wich cost few bucks more(like 200-300 more) but worth it

    video got for Nvidia i dont recommend ATI wich i had before and alot of problems
  7. Jan 11, 2007
    Good point... I'm an AMD man, cna't say much about intel and its "quirks".
  8. Feb 1, 2007
    There is no 3.0GHz model. It is 2.4 or 2.666...
  9. Feb 21, 2007
    isnt there like a 2.8 OMG!!!1 ExTrEME version or somthing....then you could just round that off to 3.0 and whalah! You got a 3.0 :smile:

    Anyways, I dont know about nvidia's new cards like 7xxx and 8xxx, but my 6800gt ran cool and quiet. Then i got this x1800xt, and its louder basically the rest of my computer combined. I think my next card might be nvidia.

    So intel is releasing a new chipset thats going to be 20% faster on apps? I no nothing about this....its so hard to keep up

    Aceros... I just clicked on the link you provided. I have those memory sticks currently. I had those in my comp prev, then RMA'd them, and didnt want to wait for the week w/o RAM, so I just bought the GSkill I have in there now. And my Corsair sticks are brand new and just chillin on my desk, lol. Oh well. They are good sticks. They claim, they would do 4-4-4-12 at 2.1v at 400FSB...Mine weren't stable at those timings, even at 330FSB, so I RMA'd them :smile:.....I had no compalints with the memory, or them tho, they didnt even question my RMA, hehe

    hows amanda?
  13. Feb 1, 2007
    I take it you mean "How well does it run?".

    If so, I don't know, I haven't used it yet, but apparently it is friggin brilliant.

    I am beginning to regret buying it a little. It cost me $120, and it uses a PCI slot. To be honest I bought it to put on if I decided to overclock. So I might just use the stock one and replace the 80mm fan with my 120mm one.

    I also upgraded the specs a little since I originally posted this, but they are in ck27's thread. I will copy and paste them here in a second.

    Intel Core 2 Quadro Q6600 @ 2.4GHz
    Intel Bad Axe 2 Motherboard (3 PCI-E, 2 PCI)
    BFG GeForce 8800GTS Overclocked (Upgrading to SLI around Christmas)
    2 x (2 x 2GB Corsair Dominator RAM DDR2 800MHz) YES 8GB RAM
    Enermax Galaxy 1000W Powersupply
    Creative X-Fi Music 7.1 Sound card
    Creative 7.1 speaker set
    LG 22" widescreen monitor (Or my 26" HDTV)
    Titan Amanda CPU cooler
    2 x Samsung DVD RW drives
    7g Arctic Silver Thermal Compound
    2 x Western Digital Raptors (150GB, 10,000RPM, 16MB cache)

    Came to around $4000
