thx the for advice

btw, is it other conflict problem between those hardware
because i heard the Phenom II X4 have a problem with DDR3 memory.

so that i decided to plan the spec DFI, AMD and ATI

i will buy online in newegg.
or is there any good online store beside newegg?

nothing wrong with DDR3, its compatible with your AM3 motherboard. don't expect to get a 6.5ghz OC like in that youtube video :P they were running at near absolute zero (-273 deg celcius).

Everything sounds good but I would get the AMD 955.

I'd recommend this board:
Gigabyte MA790XT-UD4P

Also, it has been said that the Phenom II's don't like running all 4 DIMM's at DDR3-1333 speed. However, the C3 stepping chips are supposed to have fixed the issue anyway.
All Phenom II 965's that have a 125W TDP are C3 stepping.

I have the DFI LanParty DK 790FXB-M3H5

is a good mother board

I have one Athlon II X4 620 @ 3.2GHz
I came to 3.2GHz easy easy

the 790FXB-M3H5 is a big Cost benefit in Brazil

Yes, it is good. But it also costs more than the MA790XT-UD4P.

Also, the Gigabyte board has better power regulation.
