    The 600W Seasonic is £10 more expensive than the 620W Corsair that's made by Seasonic anyway... so it'd be a daft choice.

    And as I've already pointed out, PC8500 is overkill even if he is overclocking...

      • Memory:
      • Corsair
      • Storage:
      • Western Digital
      • Graphics card(s):
      • EVGA all the way
      • PSU:
      • Corsair or Seasonic are good
      • Case:
      • Any that looks nice and has great cooling
      • Operating System:
      • XP/7 and any thing else
      • Monitor(s):
      • Big widescreen will do
      • Internet:
      • Some thing nice and fast with no cap
    But the Seasonic has far more amps on it

    To be honest he's getting a Asus p5kc board that has native support for DDR2 1066 and DDR3 1333 memory, so it would be kind of silly getting slower speed memory when the board could do so much more but hey it's his money, as I say if you can afford it then spend it but if you can't then save up some more

    That Ballistix RAM for the same price is the best bet. Even if you only run it at PC2-6400, you can tighten the timings to 3-3-3-3 at that speed (depending on the motherboard), and this may or may not be of benefit to you.

    The other RAM almost certainly wont do that, and as its the same price, you may as well have a pop at it

      • Internet:
      • ICUK ADSL2+ ~4 Mbps (sadface)
    320MiB fine for now, but i'm sure more will be used in the near future. In an interview with Epic they said with Unreal Tournament III they will be filling 512MiB of VRAM on the high settings. As for maxing Supreme Commander, you may want 3GiB of RAM for it, and definitely 64bit Vista, not 32bit. It's one of the games that can hit the 2GiB limit for an application in 32bit when the settings are maxed and you're far into a game with thousands of units around, causing crashes.

    I think what I just said was correct anyway, please someone correct if i'm clueless XD.

    Vista Ultimate has 4 more benefits compared to Premium - are you really going to make use of them? The money saved can go towards something else that needs a boost - Vista Premium 64-bit = £65.65
