Default Upgrade for my comp. MoBo, RAM, Cooling.

Power Supply: 600W Seasonic
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13GHz
Motherboard: Asus P5N-SLI (Chipset: nForce 570 Intel) (SLI Compatible) (Conroe)
Memory: 2GB DDR2 Corsair at 667MHz value select
Hard Drive 1: 250GB Western Digital (16MB Cache) (7200 RPM) (SATA)
Optical Drive 1: Sony DVD-ROM/CD-ROM (DVD Reader 16x / CD Reader 40x)
Video Card: nVidia GeForce 8800GTX 768MB (By: eVGA) (PCI-Express)
Sound Card: Creative Audigy SE

This is all stock cooled, and the only reason that I think I'd need to upgrade my cooling is if I was going to OC, and I can't really OC until I get new RAM. But I don't really know what to do, so any help would be nice.

When going with the cooling, get the Monsoon II Lite CLT-M2LI LGA775. This neat little cooler doesn't use water, its actually more like a little air conditioner for yer CPU. It does require the use of a free PCI slot,tho... I've heard it actually does better for OCing that regular CPU use.

Ram prices have been SLASHED in the past 2 months severely. I payed $215 together for my 2GB of G.skill and now my same sticks are $144.99 lmfao.

I feel worked but thats alright it happens. I would get this ram

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

as for cooling get one of these

Newegg.com - Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler - Retail
