Limitations are everywhere...a sound graphics card is a worryless obstacle in your OC...PSU,CPU,RAM can then be singled out.

Depending on what your pocket is like I would look at going duo core worth it by far!!

There are a fair # of cheaper good boards out now and you just dont beat the performance of these duo cores.

I have built 2 systems so far and working on a third

1= abit AW9D-MAX w X6800 extreme
2= asus P5B w E6700

my third is Asus P5W64-WS PRO w X6800 Mobo in Tues.

I have used a VS set of corsiars on my recent build for a friend. By increasing the voltage +.2v, I was able to get a nice 60mhz oc'....w/ further tuning I might have been able to push farther....but it wasnt my rig.

try somthing rated well over ur mobo, someone once told me to do that and it oced reall well but be carfull some chipsets dont like ram thats higher than rated.
mostly, anything exept intel and nforce and as a personal fav i like g-skill


and ass for the mobo try somthing like the ASUS P5B Deluxe http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131045
if u cant afford one try somthing with an intel chipset and that mobo is good to if u wanna go core 2

Whats the budget for this system? Hard to recomend a good setup without a budget. You listed the 805 and value RAM, so i'm gussing there IS a budget.

Also, will you be using existing hard drives or buying new ones? If you have old PATA hard drives, your motherboard selections may be limited.
