Why dont you save up a littel more and get something better. You'll actually be saving becuase the part will last longer and have better performance

You would do yourself better to save that cash and buy a better CPU and cooling solution. Your XP2100 Palamino won't OC very well, especially with a VIA chipset. Save your cash for a better set-up. 256MB of RAM won't show you any difference at all. Neither will a better Mobo.
