Hi, guys :
I am putting a gaming combo together :

Intel Q9550 2.83GHz Quad Core
Asus P5Q-SE Motherboard
4GB DDR2 800 Kingston Memory
ATI 4850 512M

Is this a good combo with overclocking ?
I am looking a balanced system that not only one part is faster than the other .
I think memory is the place to upgrade .
any suggestions ?
thanks !

I would go with at least the P5Q, however I'm full heartedly recommending that you get the Gigabyte P45 UD3P instead.

It is an absolute monster, meant to overclock Quads!

It will easily hit 500+FSB, provided your chip can take you there (and it should be pretty easy)

Good luck
