Mushkin RAM Not Recognized Correctly (Help!)

27 June 2009 - 04:54 PM

So I recently built my computer and everything checks out fine except for the mushkin ram I purchased.
Also here is my setup:

I checked on CPUz and it shows the ram as PC2-6400. I bought the ram labeled as PC2-8500. I quickly sent mushkin for some support but am still waiting for a response. I don't know why it is not showing and I'm posting here for some clarification on this issue. I like to receive what I paid for. Is there any settings that I have to configure with my motherboard or any of that sort? Any help is greatly appreciated of course. :thumbs-up:

Best Performance, but with some security?

I'm planning on running 2 WD 500GB HDD. I've considered doing RAID 0, but a little hesitant on losing data. Right now, I'm thinking of not running any raid, just split the hard drives like this:

-200GB O/S Programs

-Note: I am also an avid gamer and like to have fast load up times. Where would I place my games and such? Another thing is I'll be having a lot of media on it so where would you consider putting that also? Any input would be greatly recognized. Thanks. ^_^

Hd/blu-ray Computer Setup

26 December 2008 - 01:58 PM

Okay my parents gave me the okay to use their money to build them a HD/Blu-Ray computer. This build is meant for their hi-def pictures/videos and such. But I also want it to be a good gaming computer so I can play competitively like I always do. The price range has to be around 1,200. I'm not sure on the power supply as it is out of stock and the motherboard. I don't know the requirements to run blu ray besides a good monitor/videocard.


Any suggestions would be a great help. I plan on purchasing parts as soon as tomorrow. :)
