Default $1200 computer build

Ok I have a $1200 not including shipping. I want a fast computer that is very overclockable and I only need the box. I will need hd, mobo, ram, video card, psu, case, dvd burner, cpu, and some sound card if needed. I use a 5.1 headset.

noooooo not the 4200... it's a waste. if your ocing, get an amd opteron 165. It's 30 dollars cheaper... also, I don't know abou that ram, so do a bit for research. I'd recommend the Antec Truepower II 550 watt power supply: it's about the same price and is respected. otherwaise the rest is great. If you're getting a case, though, mae sure it matches ur dvd burner color.

yeah opteron 165 I agree would be a decent altertive. I made a mistake with the ram I just sure the name and the 2-2-2-5 timing and asumed it was pc3200 stupid me. yeah you woudl want to change that to a pc3200 model.

Umm, AFAIK, this "rule" no longer applies to AMD because of the onboard memory controller. Or at least I thought it didn't apply anymore, if not I thought it wasn't as important.
