    I wouldn't worry man. Even if they won't run at 1866, the sticks will just run at 1600. You can set them to do so yourself, just check and set the frequency in the bios. I've read that this motherboard supports up to 2800 OC'ed though. I don't think you will have a problem.

    You are right, there is support for multiple hard drives. You don't have to use storage spaces at all. It's just there to give users another option. Raid works in the same way as it did on Windows 7. Install the raid drivers on installation of the OS. As for Nvidia driver problems, I can say that I haven't had any problems whatsoever. The only time that I can remember having a problem with graphics drivers in my life is when they haven't been uninstalled properly, or when I've bought a new GPU on release day and the drivers aren't up to scratch yet. Regarding the Call of Duty problems Google mentioned, I can't comment as I don't play it. I have had no problems with any games myself. Yes if their were none of the tablet UI stuff it would be the usual desktop OS. You can also shut off the things that would concern you regarding privacy (E.g. sharing, apps using your location etc). Google, maybe if you had taken more than a day to use the OS, you would have found that it is not all that bad. You may have also worked out the problems you were having with a little time, patience and research. You know what they say......Google it.

    No, not really. Go with 8 though, it uses less resources and has much better support for SSD's if you have or are going to get one in the future. Most of the haters are just complaining about the Metro part which you don't even need to use. Think of it as Windows 7, but using less resources (E.g. RAM etc). Some people also complain that there is no start button. This can be overcome by downloading some third party software. Not an ideal solution but it works flawlessly. The start button may even be a non issue on Windows 8.1 release....not sure as there have been different reports suggesting that there will / won't be a start button. With Windows 8.1 there will be an option to boot straight to desktop, so you won't even have to look at Metro ever again if you don't want to (Most of the third party software for the start menu already offer this option anyway). It's up to you at the end of the day, but both Windows 7 and 8 are good. You can't really go wrong with either if you prefer to use Windows OS. Some people just like to moan about things, and look back on older OS with rose tinted glasses. For example, dealing with drivers was a nightmare with Windows XP. Windows 7 and 8 make life a lot easier regarding drivers as they automatically find many of them. Windows XP was good on resources, but many people are comparing it to Vista when they say this. Vista was well known to be a fucking travesty. Anyway, rant over. Enjoy whichever you decide to go with.

    Hi, for gaming you should go for the i5 really. If you are rendering video then the AMD FX 8350 would be the better option due to it having more threads. Although if you are rendering, then it would be better just to shell out for an i7 as they smoke the AMD 8350 in every way. (If you don't believe me, check out a few benchmarks) The AMD 8350 is an eight core CPU but it is widely known that AMD cores do not perform as well as intels. Roughly half the performance, meaning that the AMD CPU performs roughly the same as a four core intel even though it has 8 cores. TBH though, if you are only using it for gaming then the CPU does not matter as much as you might think. You should spend the most money on a graphics card. Many people seem to make the mistake of buying an overly expensive CPU, and buying a lower performance graphics card. Just make sure the processor is a quad core or higher in order to avoid bottlenecking the GPU. Both of these CPU's are good mid range choices though. You won't really go wrong with either.

    Lighten up Mr. Keg. We have been drinking since the discovery of fermentation (before even), and rolling since we were given the gift of opposable thumbs. None of these things are particularly good for you, but we do them anyway. Call it human nature. What about cirrhosis of the liver. Is that sound justification for the widespread use of alcohol? I think not, but we still drink. As you have said it contains non sequiturs. Why so serious then?

    Don't forget the haggis and scurly. If you don't know what scurly is........google time.

    Sorry, gone a bit of topic. Lol

    Ram

    plus the fact that Corsair has the lifetime guarantee for the ram as well as their power supplies,,,i used a power supply warranty once and the service was outstanding....they shipped me the new first so i wouldnt have any down time...and i sent the bad psu back in a postage paid label paid for by Corsair..so the choice is yours The RAM has a lifetime guarantee, but I don't think that the PSU's do. More like 5 years give or take a couple of years each way depending on which power supply. Corsair are very good though. yeah i had the HX1000 modular....which was two 500 on split rails....so they replaced it with the 1050 modular single rail a better psu in my opinion..... Yeah, their service is very good. Most of my psu's have been Corsair. I believe that most of Corsairs range are actually made by Seasonic, who are well known for making some of the best power supplies out there.
