sorry im stupid. here: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...153-007&depa=0


also my current ram is one stick of nanya 256 mb pc 2300 and one stick of micron technology 512 mb pc 2100. thats really bad. i hadnt looked at it until now. no company ive heard of and its not even pc 2700! so whats some resonabley priced ram. im looking to get a gig but the mobo im looking to get has 4 slots so it can be four 256 mb sticks.

I'd suggest an Antec over a Thermaltake PSU, I've heard some people have issues

also, I said 2.6GHZ, because the 3000+'s are in the Winchester core, and overclock well
plus he's getting a good CPU fan, and a case with good cooling
although with the RAM I don't think you'd get very high. I would suggest something better if you can, something like OCZ or PQI, which overclock well

OCZ and PQI use the same TCCD's and PCB's, so you might be better off with PQI against OCZ, since they are cheaper

Well that looks like cheapy ram so I'm assuming for good overclocks on that RAM you will get a lot of heat and need a lot of voltage. So if you get that you might want some copper ramsinks to keep them cool.

Thermaltake makes good power supplies, I think the one you linked to looks good.

Make sure you get some Arctic Silver 5! it's a little better than the stuff that will come with the zalman

also, I hope you have a good board for overclocking!
