Computer Set Up Questions--2


S

Skip

I really appreciate the help of people who responded to the first post, and
found their suggestions to be very helpful.

Given their input, I have done some more homework and put together another
list of products for a gaming computer I would like to put together. I'd be
using the system primarily for online gaming.

I've put a web link to the web sites I looked at to get my information. The
one area I am still needing help with is RAM. I have two companies (OCZ and
Corsair) who both sell matched sets of RAM. My questions on RAM are:
1. Are these two products a waste of money for this type system and if not.
which of the two lines of RAM would be a good choice?
2. If a matched set of RAM is not the way to go, could you make some other
recommendations?

Again would really appreciate anyone's expertise and thoughts about the
system below. Thanks in advance for your help and time--skip
