Hi everyone, I'm going to buy a system but i dont know for sure wich parts to use, so I'l ask you what are the best choices, I plan to overclock the CPU and GPU.
as for the mobo, I've got 2 choices:
1. the MSI K8N Neo-4F nForce 4 MSI mobo' ">
1. and the Giga-byte K8NF 9 nForce 4 Giga-byte mobo' ">

now, i get on to the CPU.
I'm doubting between the amd64 3000 venice and the amd64 3200 venice(dont directly say 3200 without any hesitation plz) wich of these 2 is most stable?(and overclockable in %) with wich one do i get the most "bang for the buck"?

now, on to the GPU, I'm doubting between the following:
1. ATI x800 GTO (interest in iit because i read its an overclockers dream, core almost 200mhz up)
2. ATI x800 GT (both 128mb or 256mb version)
3. nVidia 6600GT (also, 128mb and 256mb version)

here, I also would like to know whats, the best price/performance deal.

Additional information: The computer is going to run at Linux (Debian)

neo4-f I have it, I love it, though it isn't perfect

3200 Venice (10x multiplier) mine overclocks easily, and stays very cool

x800GTO...get the 256mb version, overpowers anything in the $200 price range

if you were running windows...but, since you are going to be running Linux...go with an nvidia card...
