For the DVD drive, you should get this one instead http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827129009
its cheaper and also a good quality, I've heard that the samsung one can only burn up to 200 discs and then fails after that.
There are too many DOA on that model, which is why I posted the one from another site, slightly different model.
There's this tri-SLI thing happening now I think, but I don't know too much about it.
Yes, that's with the 780i boards. Only the 8800GTX and 8800Utra can do it at this time.
just out of curiousity why shouldnt i get the striker mobo?
It's really overpriced and has lots a few issues (like any 680i board does). I'd suggest a Intel chipset over a nVidia chipset any day.
Don't buy the ultra, if you don't want to buy a ATI that's fine, just let me know.
As for the memory, I thought it was 2x1GB RAM, which would have been really over priced.
If you want 4GB of RAM I'd suggest this one.http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231145
It operates at tighter timings and higher frequencies and is the best valued 4GB kit. Keep in mind that a 32bit OS can only use about 3.2GB.
