    back in 2009 the word ssd to me meant: crazy rich butt fuzzbucket that wants nothing more than to show off why does it say fuzbuket when i mean to have ., s3xexcept say it in bad word? now that technology has evolved.... are you still a crazy rich butt fuzzbucket that wants nothing more than to show off if you buy a ssd?

    Project: Hell

    dont go for the nvidia TI series, they suck. get a gtx 460, which costs as much as a ti, but faster

    zalman cooler vs hyper 212+

    the Zalman gots more copper though, so wouldnt it be more efficient?

    zalman cooler vs hyper 212+

    Can't decide which one to get. Looking to get an after market cooler so I can start overclocking. I have decided between the hyper 212 plus, and a zalman 9500a, however, the hyper 212 plus is cheaper but i have been told that the zalman cools cpus better (in my case, amd phenom2 955). If you have any other suggestions please keep the price range below 50 dollars. One concern that I have if i get a 120mm heatsink is that it will interfere with the ram sticks (gskill ripjaws) as they are parallel to the am3 socket, and look a bit tall due to the jaws as the heatsink. hyper 212+: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065 zalman: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118223

    Improving cable management?

    if some of your cables dont have slack (outstretched too far to bend), you can get an extension to lengthen a cable, at which then you will be able to tape them to the side or corners of your case.

    from my knowledge, all these parts should work together to play most games of the day. but since im spending quite a bit of money i just want to confirm with the pros. I already have a hard drive with 32bit windows xp on it, do you guys think if i just put the hard drive with the build below it should boot without problems (after installing mobo and ati drivers first). I know that i wont be using the full 4 gigs of memory (probably about 3.5) but i intend to get a caviar black in the future and reinstall x86_64 windows 7 or xp on it. Also, i wont be using an aftermarket cooler initially because i dont intend to do much ocing but after i get a lil bit more money i will buy and aftermarket cooler and push that 955 to about 3.8 ghz or somehwhere around that (im a beginner overclocker), but i heard that you can oc .2 ghz right out of the box with stock cooler (since its just a downclocked 965 in the first place). What do you guys think of this build? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371007&Tpk=antec%20earthwatts%20ea500 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102858 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131668 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103808 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147144&cm_re=destroyer-_-11-147-144-_-Product http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226103&cm_re=mushkin_blackline-_-20-226-103-_-Product for the ram i chose mushkin over xms 3 for the better timings but is it worth paying 14 dollars more?

    in the end i decided to go with gskill i dont want to buy value ram. and its only a few bucks more which can save me a bunch of trouble.

    i may get that one since its the same thing but cheaper (just the diff in speed is not that bad, but then again if i overclock ill be doing it from the multiplier black edition). it doesnt come with any fancy heatspreaders but i dont care for those. its just aesthetics and ram doesnt melt like cpus do in the first place. time to roll that dice again.

    well its going to be 1 more month before i can get all of the parts, since i need to wait for the money to come in.

    alright ill get teh 2x2 sitcks. sorry, i already bought that antec powersupply but i dont think i lost much when you think about it, the antec one has 2 12v rails at 22 amps (i know it sucks but i dont think i lost much). at the time that i bought that antec i bought it for 74 dollars. Sorry, but if i do have a next build i will consider those power supplies. i dont think ill ever need more than 8 gigs anyways (hopefully i wont remember this sentence in the next few years or so, reminds me of bill gates's quote). one thing that concerns me though, those 2x2 sticks have preety big heatspreaders on it, will they interfere with an aftermarket cooler??? for dual channel, i just put one stick on like a red colored slot, and the other stick on a different colored slot right(a1 and b1)? also on the mobo, if i decide to crossfire it wont be that great since the other pciex16 slot is only running at x4, so if i ever want to upgrade a gpu i will just have to get a stronger single card...

    ill probably get the gskill then. its like apples to apples except one apple is cheaper, so why waste more? also for folding at home, i signed up with the occ team but my name isnt on the list, how do i get it on there, i also cant see my personal stats?
