Building a new rig and I need suggestions - Page 2

post #11 of 12
It seems you're chosing your RAM based on a smaller budget which is what I did when I built my rig. I bought some Corsair value RAM and truly regret it. If you want to overclock your CPU at any time in the future, your value RAM is going to hold you back from getting the most of your CPU. If you could some how save about 150 for some OCZ platinum rev2 (2x512), you would be in good shape to overclock at 1:1 fsb. Just my 2c!

Have fun with that 7800 GT, can't wait to get one of my own!

Alright boys and girls, things have changed so I have a new plan. I'm selling my current rig and upgrading slightly but not completely. Please tell me if these parts are compatible and if I will be able to run BF2 on high settings:

That's a chaintech VNF4, an AMD athlon 64 3200+and an eVGA Geforce 6800gs 256 mb.

I need recommendations on ram, I want to run 2x512 dual channel but i know the chaintech mobo is picky and I can't find a compatible and affordable choice. Is it possible for me to use my kingston valueram?
