My build will consist of: cpu - intel allendale E2160 1.8ghz mobo - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L vid card - MSI NX8400GS-TD256E GeForce 8400GS (256MB onboard) 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Im confused on what ram to get. There are so many choices and im fairly new at this. Can i get away with just overclocking the cpu and not the ram?

I'd go with the Crucial though. On that motherboard, if you OC the fsb, you automatically OC the ram. But don't worry, you can hit 1000MHz with that ram easily. | Report abuse Hatman February 21, 2008 1:08:23 PM Not like you are going to get 500mhz FSB anyway. PC2-6400 will probably be fine. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>Overclocking CPU - What Ram should i get?> Related ressources: ForumOverclocking I5-750 -- What RAM should I buy?
