Is this a good new AMD upgrade?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well I decided to upgrade my system after couple years. Here are the parts-

DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 2.2GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103539

EVGA GeForce 7900 GT KO

Im currentaly using 1.5 gigs of RAM, gonna put that in my new motherboard.
Before ordering I was wondering if this is a good upgrade and build, I still gotta get a good case with nice cooling, and a good psu to power all this stuff. Is this build good for overclocking?

I thought it was.

Just get a good heatsink, and only use 2 sticks of matching RAM, they'll overclock alot better.
