I have never built a computer before. Here is my list of parts. I will need to buy a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I do play D3 and other games, trying to stay under $1000 (not including monitor, etc. I'm about $847.77 with blue ray optical drive. I picked that ram because it was on the motherboards compatible list, and Patriot is a name I know, and that part # only came in a set of 3 4gb each that I could find. I don't think I need 12gb. What RAM names do you guys trust and use.
Again, thank you for your help, and looking forward to your opinions and help.
