Its been about 4-5 years since I built my last computer (gpu is an asus FX5950... so old lol) so im a little out of the loop now with compatible hardware, been through alot of reviews and im almost decided on which parts im getting. Any feedback on the parts selected would be very helpful, also a little unsure of which memory to buy. Price isnt a concern, so any suggestions on that would also be great. CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 CPU cooling - Noctua NH-U12P Motherboard - Asus Striker II Extreme Memory - Unsure what will be best with CPU/Motherboard *need help here* Graphics Card - 1GB EVGA 9800 GX2 SSC <---Will probably get a second one at a later date Powersupply - 1000W Zalman ZM1000-HP Possibly going to use a Raptor 150gb harddrive to install windows etc on. read some reviews saying the speed really doesnt make much difference at all. Again any help would be great.
