What are you going to use this computer for?
What RAM are you going to use?
Are you going to overclock it?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

2x2GB - Don't know brand/model, I'll ask him and let you know
Overclock - Most definitely, I was planning on looking into it

for overclocking that core 2 duo you need a premium HSF, not stock

also the 2 gig sticks are not as good a buy as the 1 gig sticks

a lot of people are using 4 1 gig sticks at faster cas and for less money than 2 2 gig sticks

If you are going to overclock you will want to go with a good quality brand of RAM like the Ballisix line of Crucial.

I would go with a premium HSF from Zalman for overclocking.

The best HSF for overclocking is a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme heatsink combined with a Scythe S-Flex or SilenX iXtremea Pro fan. It will take 6C of the best Zalman has to offer.

Nice cooler Mr. Alpha hadn't seen that one yet. The Extreme model seems to be elusive however. I did find one website buy.com that had it. Newegg, Amazon.com, and Tigerdirect did not have the unit.

4x1GB of Ballisix of Crucial RAM
Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme heatsink (IF It is available)

I wont go to crazy extents with the overclocking, as I heard somewhere it reduces the life of the internal parts?

Also what do you guys think about the LEGEND gfx card? He said it was the same chipset as the all other leading brands of the 8800GT but $100 less?

Thanks for the input :thumbsup:
