Hey guys,

im new to this forum and I wanted to upgrade my pc then overclock it. Currently i have the MSI K8N Neo Platinum (MS-7030) Motherboard

http://www.msicomputer.com/pro...pec....SR&class=mb

with a AMD 3000+. Im planning to upgrade to a 3400+ and buy some high performance memory. I can go up to 2gb of memory. At this point i know that i have to get an aftermarket fan for the cpu. I need some guidance on what type of fan and type of memory i should get. I leaning towards the Crosair brand. any specific specs i should be looking for with the memory or the fan?

You'd be better off just sticking with your 3000. I have yet to see a 3400 that overclocks by more than 200mhz over stock without raising the vcore to 1.6v.

Hope all this helps.

EDIT:
Also, the lower the stock multiplier, the better potential the CPU in question typically has. Since you have a 3000 with a stock multiplier of 9x, that looks much better than a 3400 with a stock multiplier of 11x... Just some food for thought.
