right will it be a P4 system or a amd system? if P4 ur gonna be paying through the teeth for DDR2, DDR1 is alot cheaper but that means ur gonna have to get a amd. ur gonna have to look for gskill, corsair, gell or ocz as far as brand goes.

Go to dell.com, they have a new gaming pc that is awesome. Or you could use AlienWare.

well divide the 5600 by 8 means that, that ram is able to run at 700mhz ie a fsb of 350. ive never used a P4 (and dont intend to) so i dont know how the fsb on them work. TBH there is nothing hot in DDR2 atm its just plain too expensive and has rubbish timings. sorry cant help with the pc2 bit
