Check out the overclocking guide in the Intel forum--it is pretty comprehensive with what settings do what.

Regarding your RAM, you'll basically just want to use the divider (or multiplier) that keeps it as close to stock while you increase your FSB--this will take the RAM out of the equation. So basically up the FSB, adjust the RAM multiplier, and add CPU voltage when you fail to boot. Repeat with stress testing. There's more in the overclocking guide, so check it out: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...rclocking.html

I didnt buy everything on ebay, the azza case, apevia psu were new items from newegg. The both got awesome ratings and i think both are awesome. I will keep an eye on the PSU power output. I got each of the cards for 50$ shipped. I figured that was a good starting point for a new machine. plus it was my first complete build.
