Hey kinda new here, i have OC'd before years ago on an old P4, now for a few years i have had a Q9650 and i want to get back to OC'n. Another question i have is i have an asus striker II extreme board and im buying a new vid card and ram. The board says max speed is 1333, but 1600 and 2000 oc. Now do i buy 1333 and oc it to get it there? or do i buy 1600/2000 and oc to get it to run?

Here is what my rig is goign to be once i get parts, and how do i go about ocing cpu and ram(if needed to run at 1600/2000)
