They'll do 230mhz at CAS 2.5, 240 to 250mhz at CAS 3. They don't need a lot of voltage and run pretty cool. I don't have any cooling on mine and have run them at 230 mhz for almost a year without lockups on any games.

So anyways....tell me what you think and if I can do better for my dollar and such

CPU:
http://www.canadacomputers.com//inde...67&cid=CPU.611

MOBO:
http://www.canadacomputers.com//inde...203&cid=MB.693

RAM: X4
http://www.canadacomputers.com//inde...40&cid=RAM.178

CASE:
http://www.canadacomputers.com//inde...617&cid=CS.664

HD:

KEYBOARD AND MOUSE:

MONITOR:

VIDEO CARD:
http://www.canadacomputers.com//inde...98&cid=999.243

OPTICAL DRIVE:
http://www.canadacomputers.com//inde...544&cid=CR.184


So after taxes, shipping and handling and all that good stuff factored in I got a quote from them for a gran total of $2,042.34

so how does it look people?

edit:, I forgot to mention I plan on getting 4 sticks of that ram to add up to 2 gigs
Not sure what your budget is, but I definately recommend get the 4400+ so you can have the extra L2. Well worth it. $458

For your RAM, you do not want to get 4 x 512mb for several reasons. 1 it stresses the memory controller. 2 you can not upgrade easily to more than 2GB. Go for some OCZ Gold , this is some great RAM. $195

For the motherboard, good choice, but here is the Asus A8N-SLI Premium cheaper (Premium better than Deluxe)! $180

For the harddrive, Maxtor is not as good of a company as Seagate or Western Digital. Here is a 250GB SATA 3.0 Seagate for $10 less:
Seagate Barracuda 250 GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0 $98

MSI GeForce 7900 GTX 512MB $585

You are going to need a better case with a better powersupply to power the system. I do not know your taste, so it is up to you to find it!

You want to have either a Logitech or Microsoft keyboard. All others often have problems with windows XP (expecially wireless)
Logitech Cordless Internet Pro Keyboard/Mouse $30

Your LCD monitor is not recommended because of the high refresh rate. You want 8ms or better. Here is a good one, although rather expensive:
ViewSonic 19" VG920 TFT LCD w/Speakers (Black) $381

DVD-Burner is fine.

Total: $1927 + Case and S/H

^^That system is much better than the one you were looking at. The 7900GTX is the cream of the crop!

those all seem good, but they're american prices, so with the exchange rate and shipping fees.....it's actually cheaper to buy from canada computers

Feel free to flame me though if my math is just horribly incorrect

I agree with pauldovi on everything, exceot for the ram. I'd get some g.skill. They sell for pretty cheap and perform great.
