Ok well i dont know where to start.

RAM timings the lower the better. CAS is the first timing you always see as in 5-5-5-15 the first 5 would be the CAS. This is the most important of the timings and the lower the CAS the better the performance. Each number past that is the stages of the RAM's cycle. While going from most important to least important from left to right.

Basicly I'm saying that 4-3-4-9 would be better than 4-4-3-9. Not by much but still better.


As for OC'ing it depends on the type of ram your looking to buy. IS this for an upcoming system? If it is what type of CPU are you getting

No a C2D E6300 will on average OC past 3.0 and the most I have ever seen is 3.7

You want to have a 1:1 FSBRAM ratio

meanign if yuor FSB on your E6300 is the most I've ever seen at like 540. Your ram will have to be able to reach 540 FSB OC'd.

Most cheaper DDR-800 ram will reach 500 if not 540 so its fine to get cheaper ram with it. Most XMS or G.SKill ram will reach those speeds easy.

thats going to be very hard. Youll be working with a very cheap mobo and other parts. It could be done though, the real question lies is do you need a monitor?

a 8800GTX on a 15in monitor holy ****. I think yuod get the best frames ever LOL

I would Cut down from an 8800GTX to a 7950GT and then buy a nice 19in monitor.

A 8800GTX or even an 8800GTS is not possible with a monitor wanted. Even with the cheapest parts. Just downgrade the card and you'd be fine. The 7950GT is still a good and powerful card. Or you could wait till the new DX 10 cards come out

20.1 eh?

lets see...its a bit hard without knowing your preferences and stuff but I put a cheap one and with the 20.1 spectre and an 8800gtx an E6300 and a cheap good OC board..around 1700..at bare minimum. Even an 8800GTS would give you much more headroom for things.
