HOLY ****. Wow lance I didint see that at all. I think he really did mean +225 for another stick. I originally thought hrmm maybe it was only 112 for 1gb corsair XMS??? I was like that'd be awesome. Untill i found out that adding another GB of the XMS 4-4-4-12 they woukd charge $198. Thats so expensive, that exact same ram is 132 bucks I think at newegg.

Just goes to show the overprice of things. Once again a G.Skill 1.8v 5-5-5-15 1gb DDR2-800 is only $115 bucks. I could get my G.Skill DDR2-800 running at about 4-4-4-12 like at 2.0v for 85 bucks cheaper. Just goes to show how easy they can take advantage of people who don't know any better...lol 198 bucks for a gb of that ram...HAH

Each Core is clocked at 1.86ghz. This is a Core 2 DUO. it evenly splits up the tasks between the two CPU's so its kind of like having a 3.7ghz CPU except you cant use both cores on one thing. Regardless, the C2D have lowered their clock cycles to 14 and their stage pipelines to 12. So a 1.86ghz C2D is actully much faster than a 1.8ghz Anthlon. This is basicly the same ratio of an Anthlon 2.2ghz being compared to about a 3.6 Intel P4.

Plus the CPU is built on a smaller die process (65nm) So having 2 cores that each run at 1.86ghz is really much more than it sounds. Also with a decent mobo and that ram you can OC your C2D E6300 to about 2.8-3.0ghz on the stock CPU fan quite easily. Also this isnt like 5 years ago, OC'ing things wont blow up nearly as easy at all. These CPU's were built to run about 3.0 or so ghz so putting your E6300 even at 2.6ghz would be totally stable.

Also honestly the Corsair XMS you selected is basicly regular ram with an upped voltage for tighter timings. When it comes to the price of the XMS your paying for the trusted name and the fact you dont have the tighten the timings yourself.

Also I would say lower the mobo to some sort of P965 mobo. A good one for around 140 is the Gigabyte P965-DS3. The main use of a P5B-Deluxe is not only the features but the ammount of OC ability it has. Its pretty much the best at it.
here is the link to my system:

what mobo that's available there would you recommend?

yeah it's an extra 225 for the 2gb "corsair xms2 xtreme memory" and an extra 180 for the "corsair value select or major brand"

it would be nice if you explained yourself... and there's still a good chance that i may just custom build my own pc.
