Default What Motherboard and which RAM

Hi all,

I just decided to buy the Amd x4800+. I don't really know about the current Ram's and Motherboards, so I need you help.

What are the best devices out on the market right now? If it is possible the Board should be CF/SLI.
Keep in mind that this PC is gonna be used for the Newest Ego-Shooter games like, Bf2, F.E.A.R, Call of Duty 2 etc.

Thanks for you help.

K for a mobo i would suggest the DFI Lanparty SLI-DR or Ultra-D

For RAM, if you are American get a pair of G.SKill Dual channel sticks ( 2GB)

and if your Canadian get OCZ Dual Channel Gold Edition 2x1GB

I read good things bout those.

If you want one of the best, get 2-3-2-6 timings.

only for 2 x 512MB sticks. G.Skill's best RAM uses Samsung's TCCD chips. but they aren't big enough to be used for 1GB sticks.

IMO, OCZ is better at using the BH5 chips, which is what both G.Skill and OCZ use intheir best 2 x 1GB sticks
