Building a computer... need help.

by Waddlegam / July 26, 2009 6:47 PM PDT

Okay so I am putting together a computer that I hope will be a very powerful gaming computer. I threw together some stuff on newegg.com and I was wondering to see if anyone could check to see if they would all work together and if it would actually be a good gaming computer. Here are the items I was thinking...

Cd Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151175

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811103010

Graphics Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130480
or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130475
Would it be worth it to get the more expensive card? I plan on playing very many high end video games on this computer.

Memory: I was thinking http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231047 but I am not sure if it would be needed, what do you guys think. If not how doeshttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231098 look?

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128332

Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136359

Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115017

Your help is appreciated in advance.

go to the mfg's website to see what the options are. I see two higher speed RAM options. Why go slower ?
