    Hi all. (first post)
    I gathered a little ammount of money and i want to spend them for my new pc.
    So i started with mainboard.
    ASUS MAXIMUS III FORMULA (already purchased)
    Next step i want to buy PSU for now i choosed "be quiet Dark Pro P9 750w" will it be enough for my build (give me advices).

    RAM - DIMM 8 GB DDR3-1600 Kit
    Corsair XMS3 - Memory - 8 GB : 2 x 4 GB - DIMM 240-PIN - DDR3 - 1600 MHz / PC3-12800 - CL9 - 1.65 V
    And what are the differences between them ? CORSAIR VENGEANCE 8GB KIT DDR3-1600 CL9 2x4096MB (except the price and good looking) ?

    VGA - I want 6950 (to unlock it to 6970) or GTX 570 just don't know which one is better :( I like them both (can find used 5970 vs 250€ but dont think my Psu can handle it and its used)

    Processor - i7-870

    HDD - Thinking to get 64gb SSD Kingston for Windows but not sure can i use normal HDD for storage data, i mean like C: is patrition 1 D: is normal HDD? The Pc will be used pretty much for gaming needs.

    So i bough only Mainboards other items waiting for order. Need advices is it good Pc and do i need to change something in that build?

    1 more question i want to buy "Cooler Master v10" for my processor what is the difference with "Cooler Master v8" one (sure i like v10 looking)

    looks good to me.

    Ive heard that be quiet makes a high quality product .

    The vengeance has better timings i think, checkem

    imo just buy the 6970 ive heard mixed results about flashing and i wouldn't risk it at this point unless your prepared to buy a new one in case of an issue.

    As long as all your games and windows <60gb your partition setup will work.

    idk about the cooler.

    The v10 has ram cooler (fan blowing down) and a tec on it to cool the cpu. So it's an air cooled tec. Pm cdawall, he had one.
