This is what i'm planning to upgrade to. ASUS mobo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... AM3 965 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I'm not sure what i should go for in ram though. I'm going to be over clocking so i am going for good timings. This is what i'm looking at atm. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Which would be the better choice? I was thinking the mushkin because of timings but i would also end up loosing 2 gigs.
