G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL

Pros: 1600 speed, works great, 16gb

Cons: I don't actually need 16gb. I wish I would have gotten 8 gigs of 2400 speed instead because that's cheap now.

Intel 330 Series Maple Crest 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, Intel, holds Windows 7, chrome, and a few others

Cons: Small, but I knew this going in. You only get 55.7 gb of actual space, and if used as a boot drive windows will take up most of it.

Other Thoughts: Have this paired with a raid 1 of WD black 1tb drives. Looking back on it, I wish I would have gotten a samsung 256 or 512 and some cheap external backup.

ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Got the base clock on this thing up to 108.5, and broke 5ghz on my 3770k at 100 base clock and 50 multiplier with liquid cooling, and I didn't even have to tweak the voltages after I unlocked them. I'm at 4 ghz now. Great motherboard from a great company. This motherboard is a dream. Asus has American customer support, unlike a lot of other companies (cough, cough, Dell) and they were so kind as to help me set up a raid 1 on the phone. Great customer support.

Cons: No traditional PCI slots, Realtek audio is alright, but I'm an audiophile, audio ports on the bottom will get in the way if I ever want a third dual slot gpu

Other Thoughts: I used this in my first build and I got a lot of different brands of stuff just for sampling, but I have decided that in the future I will be getting asus motherboards and optical drives, intel cpus, corsair ram, psu, and case, evga graphics, and samsung monitors and SSDs.
