I put this thread on the cooling and modding forum because I plan on overclocking much of the hardware (CPU, GPU, etc) and I was wondering 1)what you thought of the system (i.e. would the components work together well?) and 2)If I would be able to keep it cool enough with this hardware. This is supposed to be a mid range gaming rig. Suggestions will be accepted but I am reluctant to go much higher price-wise. Mobo Processor HDD Memory CPU Cooling Case DVD Drive DVD-R/RW PSU GPU Monitor Thanks Thought about my configuration and thought I might want to run 2 video cards SLI/Crossfire in the future so I found this mobo. The Abit website had a very limited number of approved RAM sticks but Kingston's reliable so I think I'll stick with them unless anyone knows about a problem with the combination. Here's the website for the approved hardware and Here's the actual link to the mobo on abit's website. That puts the price of the system to around 1600 so If someone wants to upgrade/change something there'll have to be a trade-off of hardware unless it only increases the price a few bucks.
