This is a good sub $500 budget build. I wouldn't buy ballistix. If you want good overclocking memory on the cheap, try Super Talent. They have a set of DDR2 800 Micron D9's for $51. I've got these, and they clock as well as my Ballistix and run 900, 4-4-3-7 at 2.1v. With 5-5-5-15 timings, I've had them up over 1100mhz with 4 sticks.
