Limitations are everywhere...a sound graphics card is a worryless obstacle in your OC...PSU,CPU,RAM can then be singled out.

Depending on what your pocket is like I would look at going duo core worth it by far!!<br><br>
There are a fair # of cheaper good boards out now and you just dont beat the performance of these duo cores.<br><br>
I have built 2 systems so far and working on a third<br><br>
1= abit AW9D-MAX w X6800 extreme<br>
2= asus P5B w E6700<br><br>
my third is Asus P5W64-WS PRO w X6800 Mobo in Tues.

I have used a VS set of corsiars on my recent build for a friend. By increasing the voltage +.2v, I was able to get a nice 60mhz oc'....w/ further tuning I might have been able to push farther....but it wasnt my rig.

mostly, anything exept intel and nforce and as a personal fav i like g-skill<br />
<br />
<br />
and ass for the mobo try somthing like the ASUS P5B Deluxe <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131045" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131045</a><br />

Whats the budget for this system? Hard to recomend a good setup without a budget. You listed the 805 and value RAM, so i'm gussing there IS a budget.<br />
<br />
Also, will you be using existing hard drives or buying new ones? If you have old PATA hard drives, your motherboard selections may be limited.
