    I am building system soon and I was thinking of getting like an

    amd 64 3700 and overclocking that to 2.6

    I will be running stock air cooling, everyone liek says nowadays that 2gb ram is needed, so i guess i will have to compensate by not getting seasonic s12 600 watt and getting a ultra-x 500 watt. is that good btw? and using the money to squeeze and buying a 2gb kit, the cheapest 1 I seen is geil value, can anyone tell me if its a good performer, all I want to do is overclock to 2.6 ghz, and hardly have any money to spend on this ram dilema thingy, so yea geil value or maybe someone knows a better ram for that price which is 2gig

    thanks,

    your dog sucks

    Firstly, is this for a gaming machine? Just to get an idea of how much RAM you'll need :)

    If the PC is for normal use 1GB is plenty, but 2GB if it's a gaming machine. Don't got the ultra-x just to save some money, they're not very good.

    Do you really need 500w~600w? See here.

    Enermax, FSP (Sparkle) & Tagan's come in very highly recommended, especially the latter ;)

    Memory, 2GB's a must! Regarding Geil Value Kit's overclockabilty, sorry don't know :(

    Go with the Geil Value and a Tagan PSU, just run the Geil on a divider and clock the CPU freely, you'll get great performance (S939 don't need a high memory clock, they've got plenty of memory bandwidth so it doesn't matter about using a divider).
