Slightly confused on what to buy

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have just begun overclocking with my new system and Im being very cautious.

I have an E6700 stock @ 2.66Ghz Ive got it @ 3.2Ghz probs won't take it further than 3.4Ghz even though i can.

I have overclocked my Gpu - 700GS - core 530Mhz
memory 840Mhz

This is my case http://www.aplus-case.de/
It is the iq-eye silver
It has a couple of fans and I think the air is well circulated. Came with comp from evesham.com

I have 1gb 566Mhz RAM

I would like a recommendation on what RAM to buy, I want 2Gb but I don't have a clue what I need if i am overclocking my processor, is that linked with the RAM?

I was thinking the Corsair Memory TWIN2X2048-6400C4 but I am not sure now

Thank you for your time.
