Nothing to do with Grass
I'm very close to ordering my new system - Never been in a position to buy a top notch rig and have been looking at lots of firms,
CYBER POWER, BEAST, ALIEN etc....a lot of money
However I have come across PC Specialist http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/
and they seem to be a lot cheaper...anyone had any dealings with them?
I have configured a system on their site based on a ASUS P5N32-E SLI board with a INTEL Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor. Now this is stuff of my dreams and to compliment it I wanted 4 GB of DDR II 800MHz RAM, however the configuration system would not let me saying
"Unfortunately there is a problem with the NVIDIA chipset on the ASUS® P5N32-E SLI PLUS motherboard which causes instability with 4GB of DDR II 800MHz RAM. Please click back and either change your selection to 4GB of DDR II 667 MHz RAM or change to 2GB of DDR II 800 MHz RAM"
I have done a fair bit of research and have read in this forum and other sites of memory compatibility problems with this board but I am still confused.
This company uses Corsair XMS2 RAM which I thought was a decent make and might have been OK with the board.
PC Specialist will not deviate from their specs, I suppose you can understand that for warranty purposes.
The bottom line is this - I'm a Gamer, who likes to surf the net and mess with my many photographs, using Paint Shop Pro X. I do a little Word Processing when I have to.
So bearing in mind that this is a one off opportunity to buy my dream system do I go for 2 GB at 800 MHz or 4 at 667 MHz
