Irritating BSOD problem

Recommended Posts

Alrighty.  Thank you all so much for the help.  Sorry it's been such a pain in the butt.  Hopefully I won't have any reason to come back any time soon.  >_<

The Haswell chipset is newer and does have some advantages over the Ivy Bridge chipset.

Many of the older games will play just fine on the HD Graphics 4600 of the higher end i5 processors but larger intense 3D games don't do well according to some users.

the RAM is OOS at newegg ... that may be a blessing ...

i never heard of the manufacturer and there is a low number of reviews .

stick with a known manufacturer .

ADATA and kingston are ok .

 

the power supply (LEPA) ... avoid it .

it is a brand new item and there are no reviews .

find a similar item in the rosewill line if you do not want to pay more in a "higher priced" manufacturer .
