Okay, at first when I looked, I found the RAM that runs at 530 MHz or something like that and I wondered what the hell you wanted to overclock for... but I think I found what you are talking about.

This, right?: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227211

I am not sure, but I do have a question. Is it safe to assume that your motherboard has dual channel?

Not completely sure about the RAM, but I'll do some searches and get back to you.

As for the hard drive... definitely SATA. There is SATA 150 and SATA II, although SATA 150 should be fast enough. What kind of hard drive do you plan on getting?

argh... if that is what you want, then nobody's stopping you, however I'd recommend getting two 75 GB Raptors (or two 160 or whatever) and put them in RAID. MUCH faster that way.

Not sure... I'd wait until some of the "bigger" guys get on tomorrow and see what they think. Nubius definitely knows what he is talking about. All I know is that the Raptors work great because they work at 10,000 rpm.
