well I like the mobo and might want to overclock it and other things I just want to if I can just use the 1GB of RAM until I can get some more funds to get another 1GB of the same RAM. The reason why I am getting the system now is because my parents are buying it for me and have set a budget for it. They say that they would like to purchase it before they gets this months credit card bill according to them. So that is their decision. So please give me some more opinions ok please and thank you in advance.

I think for what you need, that motherboard is just a tad overkill. If I were you, id just go for the Gigabyte I told you about. Itll save you about $100 and is an awesome motherboard for overclocking. Plus, did i mention its cheap!
