Yeah, I just need to decide on how much ram I really need and how much I really want to spend.
I have run the G-Skill Hz's up to 275 1:1 before I changed to my Ballistix 2x1GB (which has so far been running strong @ 289mhz 1:1 for the past couple of months)
Being that this is basically a secondary system; mainly for my wife to access internet and pay bills and for my 3 year old son to play his games; I really do not think I need 2GB of ram; however if it will help me in overclocking then I would definately go ahead and get the 2GB G-skill kit. but then again Price savings for $110 kit is PC3200 512X2 compared to $197 2GB g-skill PC4000 1GBx2. and if I can overclock this processor to 2.8GHZ then I would be in the 300 plus mhz mark. Ill have to see which ram performs the best and at what speeds. I think they say the g-skill performs the best around 250-265 mhz which is actually only DDR500-530. [content edited] I hate computers sometimes. too many decisions.
What do you guys think about for graphics? should I just get a 6600GT or would the xtra $50 be worth the 6800GS? I have seen the 6600GT's going for approx $100 possibly less.
Edit: What would be a good PSU around the $50 mark possibly slightly higher. I think they have some decent ones in this price range or I may wait for Newegg to get the Tagan 480 22U or whatever the model is ; back in stock.
Is this PSU any good? http://www.newegg.com/Product/...asp?...N82E16817101011
