Default overclock my processor or more ram?

I really want to clock my X2 3800+ CPU when I buy my new pc, but I don't think my ram (corsair value select) and other components can handle it. I was thinking about overclocking it to 2.5 Ghz.

So here is my question, should I just get 1 gig of ram but upgrade the quality, or get 2 gigs and refrain myself from overclocking?

2 gig of ram

But you can still overclock with cheap ram, it's just slightly harder, you will not be able to run the ram as fast though, or may put insane voltages thru it, or loosen timings.

All 3 of these method's will work on OC'ing value ram real high, and wth all 3 combined you get awsome speeds.
