good build I would use the "extra" cash to buy the other stick of g-skill ram and that build would be great if over-clocked it isn't hard and nearly impossible to burn out a part.

I just changed it to a 2x1gb kit instead, in the list.

That's a great build, but I would use the extra 57 dollars or whatever to get a better CPU, the 4200+ was probably a good choice.

Yeh, that 3600X2 is a little on the low power side... my E6300 struggles loading my desktop sometime... So that 3600X2 is gona Sux !.

I would save a bunch of money and get some cheep Kingston value ram or corsair value ram because he's not overclocking, and then get a X2 4400.
