I first understood 1 TB RAM memory. Now I understand it's 1 TB disk memory.
I have 1 TB memory.

I guess it's 1 Terabyte disk ?
I have 1 TB memory.

This topic concerns self-made PC's, in order to have the best hardware you can obtain now for a reasonable price, running Windows or Linux.
normally all I do is go to the appple store, find out how many memory upgrades I can get, what programs and applications can be supported and accessed from said computer(s). Good luck with your search!
Apple's computers are not concerned, because they are proprietary very closed systems, where you can only buy a limited set of upgrades and building everything from scratch cannot be imagined.

As for AMD, they have a list of processor that you can choose from. For instance, this is their desktop processor line page which you just choose the processor you're looking for and it will tell you its details: http://products.amd....pCPUFilter.aspx
Usually for motherboards, I would go for ASUS because all my computers use ASUS motherboards (except for the Macbook which has its own motherboard). I highly recommend anything ASUS makes.

Intel has a well-organized layout of its CPUs. Pick a processor name, click on it, and go to a table of the processors. Some observations:
- All Xeons have virtualization (VT).
- Lots of Pentium D's don't have VT.
- Ditto Core 2 Duo.
- Every Core 2 Duo that has VT, also has "Trusted Execution Technology."
It doesn't appear to me that AMD is as well organized. They have a page that shows their main processor lines, but this page links to other pages that describe the processors in generic terms. That said, their muscular CPUs, the Phenom and Opteron both seem to support virtualization fully (with several subfeatures described), and do not seem to have hardware copy protection.
Regarding Gigabyte, I haven't used their video cards, but I have had two Gigabyte motherboards, a GA-7ZX-1 and a 7VM400M-RZ. The 7V has died, and the GA is dying. In both cases, Gigabyte used inferior capacitors, and they started leaking not too long after the warranty ran out. The system integrator that sold me those now shuns Gigabyte motherboards and uses MSI and SuperMicro instead. I'll take a look at ASUS.
Thanks for the thread, and the comments!

The brands I usually have are the following:
CPU - Intel
Motherboard - Gigabyte (running Intel Chipsets)
RAM - Kingston
Graphics card - Gigabyte (running Nvidia Chipsets)
Hard disk - Seagate
I tend to stick the the big name brands because they are more reliable and their support is better.

Processors, I tend to recommend an AMD Phenom X4 for gamers, and Phenom X3 for regular users. They have the best performance to price ratio and they don't produce as much heat as Intel processors. Yet, in raw power, AMD still lags behind Intel. That's up to you to decide.
RAM, usually, I tend to stick with Patriot or Kingston as they make really really good RAM modules that you can't get better RAM elsewhere. I tend to stay away from OCZ because it's incompatible with some boards.
As for coolers, unless you're overclocking, you can stick with the stock cooler and keep your processor's warranty. Else, you can get a Zalman cooler. They are known to make the best CPU coolers. As for bigger coolers, that only applies to chassis coolers as the most important part of a CPU cooler is the heatsink and not the fan. It could be small, and effective since it's using a copper or any high conductivity metals to quench the heat.
