Default Just a Few questions.

Ok i have a few questions about my new rig that hopefully i can buy in the next 3 months or so like my dad said or ill get really ****ed cause he never wants to clean out my grandma's house(where my 1000$ comes from) to sell.

ok i just want to know what would be a better overclocker an opteron 144 or an opteron 146? i've heard that the 144 only has a 9x multiplier and im not sure but i think someone said the 146 has a 13x multiplier

Now the PSU. an Aspire 520w PSU

ok its rated pretty good on newegg, looks pretty cool(im not going by looks just so you dont critisize me), and is 520w which i need a big PSU cause of overclocking and a big video card. Dont start B!tchin at me is this is a P.O.S. cause i dont know much about PSUs.

And finally a case. im pretty sure an aspire X-Cruiser wil be a good choice but if you have anything better for the same price i will be willing to take a lok at it.

Thanx in advance

The only thing i'll comment on is the PSU. If you're planning on overclocking, you'll want a high-end PSU. Antec, Fortron, Seasonic, OCZ or PCP&C. 500w or more should be fine
