I'm building a computer with and AMD 3500 Socket 939 and an ABIT AV8 mb. Anyways, I was looking at some RAM on Newegg, and I was looking at two 256x2 dual channel ones. One was from Geil and it was "value" http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...144-309&depa=1 , and one was a PQI turbo with Samsung TCCD http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...141-155&depa=1. Anyways, I was wondering if getting the PQI with the Samsung TCCD would make a HUGE difference, or if I should stick with the Geil Value and save some $$. I might do a litttle overclocking, but not too much.

There are only a few components that will REALLY hurt you if you skimp on them. Processor aside if you skimp on Motherboard, Video card, cooling, and Power supply you will be hurting later on at some point.

NP... just remember that you can carry most ram with you to your next systems so buy the best you can... you can always buy the cheap stuff later to replace what you pillage from your older machiens... I have an Audigy 2 ZS sound card that has followed me from 3 different systems... I replace it with either the onboard sound or a SB 16 each time since I rarely use sound on any other machine.
