    well im building a new one from scratch to get ready for the direct x tens on my ageing system...
    i have bought;

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (plan on overclocking to alteast 3GHZ,maybe 3.3)
    ASUS P5W DH Deluxe Motherboard
    Hiper 580W Type-R Modular PSU SLI/CrossFire Certified
    and im still deciding between the ram... Either
    OCZ (OCZ2A8002GK) 2Gb PC2-6400 DDR2-800 4-4-4-12 ATI Certfified Dual Channel kit
    or
    Corsair (TWIN2X2048-6400PRO) XMS2-6400 2048MB 5-5-5-12 2X240 DIMM Platinum XMS2 Heat Spreader with activity LEDs

    im trying to find out which would be best for overclocking to 1066Mhz from 800Mhz, to be honest, apart from overclocking graphics cards im quite new to overclocking...

    i just need one that will keep my comp graphics good for about another year, i have a 20inch widescreen so i like to play games at a reso of 1680x1050 with most things on high but i can sacrofice on screen resolution...

    so best value for money that can get me that :D

    thanks for all your help guys.

    cool, i dont mind either, i was thinking if i got an ATI then eventually i could crossfire it but then the crossfire cards themselves are expensive, bette of putting the money towards Direct X Ten ones...

    So the 7900GTO is a good choice, any others, any advice on either of the ram
