Ok thanks now for my power supply, If I have a lets say 350 watt now, could i go with a 450 watt or something larger? or does it have to be a certain wattage. Why do you recommend new ram? Is it because when you oc your cpu you oc your ram too? And a quality brand would be better?

if you wanted new ram but i just checked your sig and you have pc3200 which is fine. If you have a few fans i would recommend a True Power 400w from Antec.

You overclock the ram when you change the FSB (front side bus) but it is unaffected if you change the multiplier
