thanks for the replies.
im gunna ditch the heatsink that comes with my cpu, and get the coolmaster jet 4.
Now i just need to get some memory and i'll have everything to get my computer running. Im excited!
I have an Asus P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard. I read that Asus recommends using Kingston memory with their motherboards. Is it a good idea to go with what brand they recommend? Also would it be better to buy one stick of 512mb or 2x 256mb and run dual channel? Im not sure, If i did get the 1x 512mb I know i would eventually upgrade with another stick of 512mb and run dual channel, but i dont know how soon i would upgrade, what is better the 2x 256mb or just 1 512mb?
