im trying to build a cheap rig for gaming and I wanna to ask: which ram do you suggest for g31m-es2l ?? my goal is e5200 @ 3,6 ghz, or maybe more but im not sure about the mobo anyways 3,6 is okay for me. I read some benchmarks saying 5200@3,6 is not bottlenecking video cards like 4850... I'm considering about the new hd4770 for video card and 2 gb ram is okay i guess (I won't be playing gta IV or crysis so..)..
so what should I do??
oh and I got BigTyp for cpu cooling @ my oldest amd rig. im gonna use that one on this.
thanks!!

Don't use that board!
You don't need on-board graphics
It's got poor memory divider options
Nobody has done well on page 1 of this thread with that mo/bo
Look at EP31-DS3L - google the mo/bo and overclocking

I've got cheapo 800mhz memory and a cheapy p35 mo/bo. See p1

I can pay 100$ for a ep35 but thats the problem: prices are still like 190$ on gigabyte p35 chipsets in my country! (tr)
its too bad cuz g31m-es2l is 49$ -- its global price. you see I dont want to pay extra then world wide prices

hmmm but I found a p43 chipset Asrock mobo which is 83$
how about that one??

* Also MSI P43 Neo-F 1600 FSB/DDR2 1066MHz 86$

I don't know which asrock mo/bo you have seen- they were not very good o/c's in the past , but this gives a good opinion - http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...abyte-p31.html

Ive got that mobo and it will work fine for what you want. the only downside to gaming on it imo is that there is no sli option . and watch the NB if you oc the fsb alot mine turned the TIM to dust , easy fix just put some as5. feel free to check my sig . my setup is cheap and i play games very well. also ddr2 800 will work fine , ocz has some good cheap ram but if you think youll ever want to OC that chip higher then I would def recommend some 1066 ram. Just because there is crappy memory multi options ,,,,, but Ive managed 4ghz on this board so i think its a steal for the money.

Got the same board and am in the top highest clocks with it. I'm using corsair xms2 cl4, it's $32 right now and can get up to 1080 at cl5.

EDIT: I bought a 40mm fan($6) 7000rpm, and put it on a cheap fan controller ($5) and just screwed it right into the top of the northbridge, seems to help a lot to keep it cool.

I also had the p43 neo-f it was a great board for overclocking, but most ram's will not run in dual channel on that board. I tried Gskill, corsair, pny and none of them would run in dual channel.

Jspeedracer - what results did you get with es2l ? Can't see anything on first page.

I'm in the top superpi's which you have to validate as well so not sure why not in the top clocks but here's stable enough for superpi:

Jspeedracer - 13.454s - 4.2Ghz - Gigabyte G31M-S2L

Also the cpuz in my sig is a 24/7 clock. At least was til weather broke lol that was 3.9Ghz I can still run that now if run 1.38v but I would rather just run 1.33v to 1.34v and stay between 3.7 and 3.8. Really need some good ram though to get high clocks with that board. I say go with some cl4 stuff ddr2 800, or some 1066 at 5-5-5-15 to get the best speeds with your clocks.
