so i install my OS to that harddrive and have another hardrive for data?

Correct, this will make your system more efficient.

would that be necessary if installed my OS on my 1tb WD hdd and saved everything else to an external hardrive like all my games etc?

If you wanted to you could simply fit the 60GB SSD and save everything to your external HDD doing away with the second internal HDD in the process, I wouldn`t recommend it though as you need somewhere to back your data up to for safe keeping, bare in mind though that 1TB is an awful lot of data to lose should the HDD fail.

CPU, yes

Mobo, Yes.

RAM, NO. You will get little or no performance gain when gaming. 2 x 4GB = 8GB

HDD, OK but if you can find this one, change. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822148840
Benchmark, http://www.harddrive...000DM003-9YN162

GPU OK.

Blu-ray? You are talking about copy on the fly and I do not know if this possible, you will need to do a bit of Googleing, You will also need to look carefully at any software that may or may not be included. From what I have read, most is very limiting or rubbish.

will this run stable at that 4 gig mark when being overclocked? even that bit higher if i have to raise it for somethings?


Yes and Yes, on the stock cooler.

MSY is good, I also have one ten minutes away.

Give us a link to the parts picker site so we can see your spend so far, will give us selection options.

last but not least is this good enough to show off to me mates hahah will it rock my world?


Definitely.

ok awesome now im getting some progress, is the graphics card ok in your opinion? and will the extra ram give me more performance when ive got heaps of applications open?

http://pcpartpicker....newbloke/saved/

please keep in mind i have no idea if the ram i selected fits or the hard drive but please change it around to how you feel it will be a nutter computer heheheh. or the graphics card!! i selected one random card around the $250 mark same as the gtx 560 that philpower recommended above just to jack the pricing in substitute of the real one i want i couldnt find it, im a noob lol

also how is 2x 8gb slots =16gb and 2x 4gb = 8gb total =24gb ram not advantageous? will it not recognise or something, or just no compatible?

i will have to study the thing you said about the blu rays yes copy on the fly that is the term. i am sure there would be something that would do this method software wise. ill have to look around i will just do the system as i am using 2 blu rays for final pricing and PSU selection

*edit* im sure you can copy on the fly with blu ray just gotta have the software, some bloke was running 4 blu ray drives

I think I have confused you.

I was saying, you do not need 16GB of RAM, Most games will not max out 3Gb.

So I am saying that you only Need 8GB RAM. That is 2 sticks of 4GB = 8GB.

Remove the Geil RAM from your list.

ohh i understand now haha, should i remove completely and not replace with 4gb slots? or just simply stick with 8gb?

i run alot of multiple applications will it be enough to handle me?

the ram is removed from the list for now though making it only have 2x 4gb

list is updated to the seagate hdd and ram is removed. **edit**

Blu-ray, You can copy on the fly but because of Copy Protection much is stripped out and you end up with DVD quality.
You can copy and store on the HDD
The Gray area. You can copy to the HDD and if you own the material, you can copy to blu-ray, there is commercial software available. Any material you do not own and burn to another media is illegal and is piracy. I do not know if you can do it on the fly.

As you are somewhat constrained by your budget, I recommend only buying one Blu-ray burner and deciding after some more research if it it worth/feasible/wise to get second one.

You will need software to play your disks. This is a very good, free, Blu-ray, DVD CD player, http://digiarty.com//
PSU. http://pcpartpicker.com/au/p/2m1H 650w modular, goods amps on the 12v rail, suitable for one high end video card but has plenty of wiggle room allowing extra peripheral hardware.


Can you update you parts picker list and post the URL again. Thanks.

very wise advice i will purchase one blu ray drive and will think about another one later on down the track with research being done. no illegal burning here, like you have mentioned quality gets stripped etc, i do however like to backup my own blu rays that i have purchased as back up copys as my friends tend to scratch discs when i lend them out :( so having a burnt copy is a peace of mind.

i will update the parts picker price list right now.... bear with me for one minute.

so all in all this all suitable for overclocking, gaming and showing off to my friends?

all updated with the psu.

unsure of what blu ray writer, there is only a couple in the selection.


**edit** also i have a copy of any dvd hd + blu ray support, will this not do the job for backing up my blu rays and keeping some of the quality?
