I'm planning to sell my ~4month old E8400 (E0). I've looked at prices, it seems to be going for $120-130. Going i7 too . And you should at least oc to mid 3's for 24/7. Wouldn't hurt to have that extra speed

You can generally get mid 3.0's on stock voltage.

Sorry to derail this for a second but I was wondering if I plan on overclocking would it be bad to get the OCZ gold ram you mention or would it be sufficient?

It will be just fine unless you plan on some serious overclocking.

I run a cas9 1600 ram and it would run fine around 4.0.
