Hey all. What would you do in my shoes? I am going to upgrade myself to a core 2 duo based system. I am going to keep the following parts: PSU: Antec Neo HE 550w GPU: Asus EN7800GT 256mb plus hard drives optical drives etc. I am looking at getting: Mobo: eVga nForce 680i SLI 775 Mainboard CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600 I am mainly upgrading myself to get ready for the DX10 games. I am keeping my current graphics card until the DX10 games start coming out, and the DX10 graphics cards start coming down a bit in price. My question is this. Corsair (or any namebrand ram) in Japan is VERY expensive. For example, Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4 is 44,000 yen (that's about $380 US and it is currently $250 on newegg). Same is true of all namebrand ram (Kingston etc.) I am considering paying the extra cost for the corsair as in the future I will probably want to OC the E6600 at some point (not right away but maybe next year or so). Here is the cost of generic ram as an alternative: 240PIN DDR2 PC6400-1GB(DDR800) JEDEC x2 sticks: $280 240PIN DDR2 PC5300-1GB(DDR667) JEDEC x2 sticks: $200 240PIN DDR2 PC5300-1GB(DDR667) x2 sticks: $200 240PIN DDR2 PC4300-1GB(DDR533) OEM x2 sticks: $190 240PIN DDR2 DDR2 PC4300-1GB(DDR533) HYNIX original x2 sticks: $240 240PIN DDR2 PC4300-1GB(DDR533) JEDECx2 sticks: $200 240PIN UMAX Castor LoDDR2-1G-800 (PC6400-1GB CL5) x2: $280 What would you do in my shoes?
