Default 3 parts that were crucial to my new PC and they were worth it

k here are three new things added to my new PC of of Pentium4 2.2 GHz

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...0%20DELUXE-UAY

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...vpn=100-435002

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...pn=OCZ400512R2

Now my system runs like a charm cause of these things
If ppl are upgrading these spec I chosen are worth every penny

All three cost me 600 so it didnt come cheap but man my PC is blazing fast as I was drinking on New Years Eve

So whatcha think?

I run 2 of those exact memory modules in dual mode, and they are blazing fast, and easily OC'ed.

Here is a review: http://www.thecrucible.ca/reviews/OC...OCZ_Review.htm

$160 USD is $206 CND right now http://www.xe.com/ucc/

Mine are winbond chips. I know they hand pick the chips as other good memory companies do, but not sure if all the modules come with winbond or others like hynix?

You can find this memory for around $145 CND ($112 USD) at some sites. I paid $143 CND per 512 MB stick.

Yep, should be good. If you can afford it later on, buy another stick, so you can run it in dual channel mode. The stock timings on this memory are already tight, and you can improve on them. If you are going to over-clock, this memory works like a charm, but I wouldn't run the timings too tight on a major CPU over-clock.

BTW Corsair kicks butt too, but it's just a little pricier. Great memory though
