1.5 667mhz ram
700w psu

4gb 800mhz
700w psu (same as before)
Q8200
Biostar G31M7TE Intel G31 Socket 775 Motherboard
windows xp pro x64

ok first question is my new mobo able to overclock cpu?
2nd is my psu strong enough?
is the stock fan strong enough to oc the cpu to like 3.0ghz
i will have a 3 fan cooler for the 9800GTX
120mm fan on my psu
stock cpu fan
will it stay cool with those fans i think the fans on the cooler are 92mm each...

Biostar G31M7TE Intel G31 has limited OC featrues. If it is ok, take a look at P45 board such as Gigabyte EP45-DS3R or Asus P5Q. What type of 700w psu you have, a generic 700w may only less than 400w on 12v which cpu and GPU draw from but still it should be fine for that rig. Should look for a better after market cooler like the one Enjoi mentoined above.

That Biostar board should be fine for typical OC but should look at better chipset such P45. The boards I mentioned above has betetr options in their BIOS menu.

That motherboard is much better suited.

Get the Ximgatek S1283 Heatsink someone else mentioned

700w should be enough, give us a brand name, and we can much better assist you

And the 3 fan cooler...do you mean your getting an aftermarket cooler for the 9800GTX that has 3 fans on it? The stock fan works fine with that video card. Unless your doing some serious overclocking.
