There's no way a 6800GS will be bottlenecked by an AMD 64 3000+. It will have no problems handling that video card at all. You should use 184 pin pc3200 DDR ram.

G.SKILL LA's are $200:

But if you're not overclocking, get Corsair ValueSelect RAM for $75.

WTF PPL still dont get it is all about he gpu and not your cpu. any processor with the speed of the 3000 will run all games in high with the hihest card. more expensive cpu are for mp3 conversion or video editing not gaming.
