Default I will not be OCing.

I'm building a computer, as many on this forum already know, but I'm not sure OCing is for me.

The parts that do it well are expensive, and I'm not so sure I'll need the performance boost. 1G Ram, 7800GT, Athlon 64 3500+ 2.2Ghz, isn't this ENOUGH?

I will probably not be overclocking. AM I CRAZY?

a neo4?
*edit*
found it
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130491

that board actually is good for overclocking. but even if you're not overclocking it will still be good.
