Total Lite-On iHAS424-98 DVD/CD Writer
I'm going to be using AE and Premiere CS6, so I figure I need the Nvidia graphics card (as opposed to a AMD one) for the CUDA acceleration. The CPU is supposed to be really good for multithreaded programs like video editing and encoding, and it has 8 cores and can be overclocked nicely. I'm not sure what power supply I need, I might go for a 600 or 750W one if I need to. The case is really cheap and is supposed to have good airflow (4 120mm fans), but if there are better options out there I'll switch. I'm also going to be using this for a bit of gaming, but I'm sure the 8 core processor and gtx560 will work fine for Tf2 and BF3 (dont need ultra settings and 100+fps or whatever).
Another question, does anyone know if there is an actual difference in the speed of ram? Like 1333 vs 1600 vs 1866 vs 2100+? Also what does the CAS latency and timing mean? Some ram says 9 9 9 24 or something, is that better?
If anyone knows anything about building computers, I'd appreciate it if you gave me some advice (++K), thanks.
