Also im wondering how far should i be able to OC my ram and what would be some good OC timings or should i stay with 2-3-3-6 @ DDR400
Must have money to burn there ,,, San Diego ??.
Seriously now,,from my perspective ,single core 3700,I do not see any advantage to your proposal,if I were you I would do the MOBO thing 1st,,,and then,,the cpu ???
And if you REALLY want to oc you should consider faster ran like OCZ's 3500 and up...
