  1. Similar to what I have, except you need lots more ram. But yes, it'll OC like mad. YOu'll still have 200 watts left of headroom in your PSU.

    4GB is the least you should run, I went with 8 (6gb is nice if you run a 3 channel intel).
  2. I have 4GB now. Do you really think I need more memory? I'm a noob sorry... Is overclocking also dependant on memory?
  3. No, OCing is not memory dependent. 4GB should be fine. That's all many people use.
  4. unless your using ridiculous memory intensive stuff 4 gb is fine, most of the time i never use more the 2 or 3 gb when i have a ton of windows open. Unless i'm using a program that intentionally uses as much ram as possible 4gb won't be a problem
  5. So I'm all set to OC with my build?
  6. Yep, you're all set. You don't need a 750W for that setup to OC.
