People here suggest getting the 3000+ and oc it to 3400+ and better. Would a 3200+ be able to go higher, 3700+? Also should I care about the memory when I oc the processor. I am thinking about 1G DDR 3500 memory.

Also is a native 3700+ better than a oc 3200+ -> 3700+?

I do video editing among other things and would like the processor to be AFAP (as fast as possible). BTW, planning to use a MSI Neo Plat board.

Also what cooling do I need to get it oc higher for around $25.(budget !!)

Thank you very much.
Regards,
Sreeni

Get Crucial PC4000 and have the best of both worlds. The 3000+ overclocks easily. Generally speaking, the lower the multiplier the better the Buss overclock.

Abit IS7 - 2.8C @ 3.4ghz - Mushkin PC4000 (2 X 512) - Sapphire 9800Pro - TT 420 watt Pure Power
Samsung 120gb ATA-100 - Maxtor 40gb ATA - 100
Sony DRU-510A - Yellowtail Merlot

Ballistix PC4000 runs 2.5-3-3-8 at DDR500 by SPD. At DDR433 (PC3500 speed) it can run 2-2-2-5. So like Cybercraig said!
