I read the forum alot and here's my latest built tell me what you think, and what could probly be added. Everything is perfectly stable.
Case : Antec 900 Mobo : Asus Maximus Formula CPU : E8400 @ 3.9 ghz (stock voltage) CPU Cooler : Zalman CNPS9700 (Nvidia/black) Ram : 2 gig OCZ Platinum pc6400 @ 1038 mhz (stock voltage) PSU : Thermaltake 500watt HD : WD 250gig (i don't need any bigger for now) Video Card : Asus GF8 8800GTX (factory clock) Monitor : Acer P243w 24" 1920x1200 2ms

Next step will be to upgrade to 4gig+ of the highest DDR2 ram on the market.

ya done good !!!!
Nice. You just bought the ram & you're upgrading them? That is your limit? I don't think so. Your limit, unless I'm missing something, would be the cpu cooler. Save up for H2O cooling or TEC.
I just wanted some cheap rams to start with and as for the limit i wanted something stable with the stock voltage. My CPU and MB are both idling at 25Celcius with my case setup. I'm freezing just sitting beside the case
