Building a new system, I know enough to put them together[its only 'lego' lol], and a tiny bit more, but not knowlegeable really. This will be my fourth. Had help here in the past under a different ID.
Use : Office, Ghost Recon MP gaming [I am 'clanned up' lol] and sound recording on SONAR 3 + REASON. I download a lot of stuff.
Budget : £700/800 max. BIts so far : Athlon x2 3800, ASUS A8N SLi Deluxe, DABS Value 7900GT. [I currently run a Radeon 9600 SE, so any 7900 will a massive improvement..and will play GRAW!]
SO : do I save a bit by buying 2GB of Corsair Value, or Kingston, as opposed to Corsair TWINX.
Idea is, save a bit by buying lower spec CPU and clock it from 2.0 Ghz to 2.3 ish. The reviews on the board say its good to clock...well its an ASUS and they seem to be the clockers choice. But I am not experienced on this and will just use a utilty to do this. I probably won't mess with the RAM timings especially the voltage, so does the extra money count here? Is the TWINX the way to go?
A local shop are also pricing a build to these specs for me [ If it is near to the price I can build it for...and no grief lol] and can't get CORSAIR [?] and want to put Kingston in. I presume the value stuff...
does it REALLY matter?
Any thoughts are very appreciated
