You can improve your CPU cooling and I would also recommend moving up to PC4000 RAM which enables higher overclocking ability.

I do not have DDR2, but was advised by one of the moderaters in here(I forget which one) that PC4000 would work in my mobo which lists up to PC3200.

I would say that your should get a better Vid card cause that thing is like the worst thing you can have besides mine, if your a gamer it would be worth it.

If I were you, I would definately get two 512mb sticks of ram(total, one gigabyte). You don't really need PC4000 with your cpu, as I highly doubt it will reach 250fsb. I would go with some PC3700, should be a little cheaper. Then I would get a different heatsink and oc the heck out of that mother. Other than that, looking good.

Dont buy the PC4000 ram until you are sure your motherboard can handle 200+ FSB.

Now, if it is capable of 200+, then by all means, buy the fast stuff!

Cooling is always a good upgrade, and I second the 9800 or 5900XT suggestion...HUGE difference in graphics.

With what was explained to me about my mobo which uses PC3200 being able to use pc4000, I would guess that your mobo can do the same.

Exactly. When ram is labeled PC3700, PC4000, etc, it just means that the ram is able to run at those speeds. It can run at any speed up to and including it's rated speed. It doesnt matter which mobo, as long as it supports DDR ram it will support any speed of said ram.

Here is a silly question.
I have to install Windows 98 on a machine that is 266Mhz and 32MB of PC66 RAM. Would it be possible for me to temperarily install my PC2100 in that machine to give some extra speed for the install?

Doubt that, the PC66? is probably SD, not DDR and is the crappy RAM, ie. not 184 pin but the older stuff, which I can't remember how many pins it has.

Thank you for making me think of it, it is 168pin DIMM RAM there is no way it will work. Now I will have the great pleasure of having to find some PC66 for that computer and some PC133 so another co-worker's computer.
