16GB memory seems a tad excessive. Maybe save a few bucks and go with 8?

ok taking into consideration your oppinion on the msi board being no good in combo with the phenom x6 im thinking a ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G will be a good replacement if thats no good ill have to spend the extra money on a crosshair. you think that 8GB of 1600 ddr3 will be sufficient? it will def save me some money! im looking for great gaming performance (No lag)

yeah the Ram isnt going to be an issue... 8 gigs is more than plenty for gaming. especially FF 14

^^^This. Great board for the price. As you stated, the Crosshair IV is kind of the creme de la creme, but not all of us can afford that. And, yeah... Save some money: If I were you I'd get only 4gb of RAM to begin with, and spend the money saved somewhere else in my build. Then save up for more RAM later. I can't think of any games out right now that could really utilize 8gb of RAM.

As to your question of overclocking the x6, people around here have had a lot of success, I think 4 ghz is around the average stable range.
