  1. here's the basic set up to give you an idea
    i7 965
    Asus Rampage II Extreme
    OCZ Vertex Series 30GB 2.5" SATA-II Solid State Hard Drive times 4 (in RAID)
    Samsung Spin Point F1 SATAII RAID edition times 2 (In RAID)
    LG Blu-ray Rewriter GGW-H20L DVD-/+RW HD DVD ROM Black SATA
    a basic DVD drive
    XFX GTX295 times 2

    Match the memory to the max memory specs of the ASUS motherboard

    You can use up to 2100~ ddr3 on R2E mobo, I must say that you're wasting 700 usd on the cpu, the 795 will be coming out this summer and price of the 965 will drop to 500ish.

    corsair would be the best though, they have the highest rated, and best performing ram chips for the x58 boards right now, at least the extreme high end ones.

    The i7 920 is a better option, especially since there is no performance difference to be had from going to the 965. And yes, get the fastest RAM kit you can from the big three i.e. Corsair, Crucial or OCZ.

    what would you says better the Blade series, the Reaper HPC series,
    or then there's Dominator that gomes with the fan or there's the DominatorGT then i could buy the fan as extra anyway
    I could go a bit over the top and get the OCZ Flex series and water cool all the RAM thoughts
