    So i've got a amd 64-3200.

    Now i need a motherboard, memory and GFX card advice.

    I'm looking for a motherboard that overclocks well as i intend to bump the 3200 up a bit. (how much can i expect?)

    I'm also looking for X2 support as eventually i will look to upgrade my processor.

    I've currently got PC3200 GEIL Value ram, but im assuming this wont really do, so i'll be needing some faster memory. (suggestions?)

    I'm looking to get all of this for £300-400 or thereabouts, suggestions please!

    I was thinking :

    DFI LanParty UT NF4 Ultra-D - £93.94
    Patriot Signature 1GB (2x512MB) PC5300 667MHz DDR2 Dual Channel Kit - £65.74
    Connect3D ATI Radeon X1800 XT 256MB GDDR3 AVIVO TV-Out/Dual DVI - £223.19

    You can't use DDR2 with current AMD systems. Stick with your value RAM for now, then upgrade to 2GB a little later. Definately go with the Sapphire X1800XT, the price diffference is about £50.
