Any recomendations?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok, I'm new to the overclocking scene, and am working on puting together a system on a really tight budget. So far I picked up a 3700 sandy for $70 an evga nf4 x16 sli motherboard for about $30, a xion solaris case for $36, a winfast px6800tdh for about $70, and am now in the process of looking for some good ram. My 3700+ is still on the truck, supposed to be here tomorrow ups, so I'm running on a 3000+ winchester (at 2167) with the ram from my old white box system (ampo pc2100) which is running at ddr400 speeds (200mhz) with what I would guess to be tight timings for this cheap old ram (2 3 2 5 at 1t). I would like to get 2 gigs of ram that will overclock like mad with my mobo and cpu setup. Any recomendations? And also, should I go with
2x1gb or 4x512?

There are a pair of 2x512's in the FOR SALE section, forget who's selling. Let me look.

Answer: 'Lots of AMD Stuff" sold by Krunk_Kracker, some hot overclocking ram

always 2X1Gb never 4x512(that can acctually hinder the speeds!)... and the HZ's are very nice Chips... Also not cheap, but they will overclock like beasts. Make sure you get DDR, not DDR2
Brrrrrrrr...

hey man and welcome to the forums. i would suggest 2X1 Gig Sticks. Or even just one pretty decent gig of ram for now so you can upgrade later. Its usually a bad idea to go skimpy on memory.

For a cheap price and decent OC id maybe go with these:

GL with the new rig man!

Before you start overclocking this setup, take a peak at your power supply unit,
its important that you have a decent amperage rating on the 12volt rail, preferably over 20a. What brand psu? 450watts may die on you when cranked up.
