dixson01974 Thanks that is a great price. But I would pay the extra 5 bucks just for the color.. I'm a big stickler on the aesthetics of my case. I'll keep this on the board though.

Here's the motherboard I've got so far!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514

And here's the RAM.. ( Way better then I thought I'd originally be able to get )

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233218

I can only afford the 8 gigs for now. Thats what I'm rocking with my ddr2 atm at stock 400mhz T_T HUGE upgrade this will be haha.

Now for a few performance questions!

This new motherboard and RAM I'm getting. According to the AM2+ mobo I'm currently with and the ddr2 ram at 400mhz. What will I notice in terms of performance?
I've only had ddr2 and never anything above. Will my graphics/processing power be better? If so about how much? Or is that a question that can even be asked. I'm not sure, I've never bought this big of an upgrade at one time! So I'm really excited..

Thanks in advance guys LOVE OCN!!!! thumb.gif

I'm not really good at overclocking. But with this new stuff I'll get into it a LOT more. As for overclocking the ram thats where I'm REALLY lacking. I just don't understand it much but then again I haven't actually read much about overclocking it as I have poor RAM atm so I don't really care to.

it's a good board for sure.

the one on amazon I linked is less amir and ships free (with prime for me) and is tax free in most states.

also the ud3 has better vrms, and I hear better bios support.

as far as seat of the pants difference you probably won't notice anything between 1333 and 1866 ram, but DDR2 400 (800mhz effective, hence double data rate) to DDR3 1600 should be an improvement worth noting. that being said 1866 can probably be had for that kind of money.

Get a 2x4GB kit, it will give you dual channel bandwidth at the same price or less.

Ok so I've ordered this motherboard today

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514

But I'm going to have a wait till tuesday to order the RAM.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA0ST08P6216&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&PageSize=10&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&IsFeedbackTab=true#scrollFullInfo

Thats the RAM I've chosen stickly because it's 1866 and dual channel. I literally have no more money to spend on it. Seems like good RAM but I'm open to any other RAM that might have more reviews. Keep in mind I need solid black or blue sticks so biggrin.gif. any cheaper RAM anyone can find with same specs would be greatly appreciated for a link to them smile.gif

Thanks in advance.
