Hm, after everything else? I usually end up picking the RAM - it rarely governs any other part of the choosing process. :)

There is a part of me that wonders what all you try to house in a computer case, but then there is that other part of me that is just picturing a hybrid case/kegerator and wants to leave it at that. (Got to keep it all cool, right?)


Processor: AMD A10-5800K @4.40 GHz (44.0x100)
Cooling: Corsair H110
Motherboard: ASUS F2A85-M PRO
GPU: EVGA GTX 770 2 GB
PhysX: EVGA GTX 570 1280 MB
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 4x8 GB (32 GB total) at 1866 MHz 10-10-10-27
PSU: OCZ Fata1ty 750 W
OS: Windows 7- Professional 64-bit

I don't remember the last time I built a full PC. I mean, one where I didn't carry parts from the last PC. In the case of my current PC, I changed almost everything over time (CPU, MB, RAM, GPU, disks, case).

 

I'd say either the RAM or the PSU (which for some reason isn't on the list). The RAM because I don't give it much attention, and the PSU because it's usually based on what else is chosen.

For me it would be either peripherals (since I hardly ever changw them) or cooling...usually I already know what sort of cooling I want before I even start (whether custom wc or just air) but I chose the components last

Cooler Master Haf 932
Asus P6T SE
Intel i7 950 @ stock
12GB Corsair Vengence 1866mhz

XFX 6970 2GB @1600x1200px atm

Samsung 830 120GB SSD 

WD Raptor 10k rpm

Segate barracuda 750GB
64x Windows 7 Ultimate

for me it is the GPU, pick every other part first to suit what I need and shave down all the parts i can like going for an i3 instead of a i5/i7,grab the value 1600mhz cas9 ram and not stupid amounts just 8gb decide if i want the SSD or HDD look for a mobo that fits what I need and then with the money that is left I can fit in the biggest GPU i possibly can into what i was budgeting for.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:
