Cheap 16 gb of ddr3 ram purchased on ebay was defective, go ffigureThis caused me to float a 4gb stick from a cheap gateway I had lying around.. Could be worse.. I think I did alright though considering it was a first build spread out over a few weeks as good deals became available. Currently running ubuntu and win7 updating like a boss. Hopefully ill get to put it to the test here soon. Also no gpu drivers to post stats yet.
