Now that I'm down the final calls, I have a couple of final questions, especially as the build cost is getting up there.
Motherboard: This has been pretty confusing. Currently looking at the Gigabyte MA770-DS3. Seems pretty good, but the boards with 780G and integrated graphics look to have a few better features (on the fly over-clocking, newer sb700 southbridge).
RAM: I'm looking at getting the bits from a wholesaler through work, and the person I'm dealing with at work is suggesting I should get 4Gb instead of 2Gb (and has come back quoting a DDR2 1066). Is this overkill?
Remote: Is the one that comes with the Silverstone alright, or should I look further afield?
Any advice, really appreciated!
