Hi

I will be upgrading my PC in about a month to the following:

Core2duo e4300 1.8ghz (when released)
Gigabyte 965p-S3
1GB Samsung 667mhz DDR2
Powercolor extreme x1950pro/Gigabyte 7900GS
Coolermaster IGreen 500W PSU

I will be overclocking and it will be used for gaming
I cant afford to spend anymore but any changes you would make that are better value or better for a similar price?

Go for the 6300 i possible as the diffrence should only be ~10-20$
(yeeh the 800 ver. 1066 bus might be easyer to overclock and I dont really know about virtualisation tech (the other diffrence))

Try to get pc6400/800MHz ram as u will easy go to the 400+ overclock

i cant afford 800mhz ram unfortunantly

I dont give a sh*t about the vurtualisation VT BS, it doesnt do crap
667ram will get 3ghz on a e4300 without having to be overclocked, so thats why I chose that
