Hi,
Since a month i'm looking for good deal on sandy bridge CPU to built a new gamming and maybe streaming CMP, mostly for SC2 at ultra setting 1980/1200. I plan to OC ( but not right now ) and maybe but another gtx 460 to put it in sli

I've found that on NICX

Missing power supplie, guess a 750w will be fine but not sure ( must be good for the upgrade ), whit case around 80 - 100 $

Did i make good research ?? My last built was 9 years ago ( Upgrade everything except MoBo ). Whit upgrade, i hope that new built gona be good as my old 1.
Tnx

Patriot RAM can be problematic. G.Skill-Mushkin-Corsair are good brands.
That site doesn't mention the speed on the Green Hdd. Many of those are 5400 RPM.

WD Black Series Hdd's are top quality and have a 5 yr. warranty.
I would use DDR3 1333 RAM. 1600 requires OC'ing to achieve that speed with that Mobo .

That Mobo will be good. I assume you are aware of the problems with Sandy Bridge?

I've just receved my piece, but like a real noob i've just realize that i forgot to order the RAM :(. I don't find anymore 2x2g ddr-3 1333 at 40$, today they're all at ~55$. So i wonder if im not going to go whit 2x4g ??? Is that waste of money or it better whit 8g. Im just gamming and maybe streamming so...

And if i go whit 8g i still go whit 1333 or 1600 ???

tnx
