I actually like the idea of buying faster RAM, that way once he buys a new motherboard and CPU which will support that speed, he can chuck his old memory into it.

Get an Abit 3rd eye and a 3200+ and overclock those, I am hearing more and more about Asus boards getting progressively worse at overclocking, and the Abit will overclock better anyways.
