Or shall I think about getting a 750w+ PSU? Thank you More about : overclock ready HideOut May 17, 2010 12:27:28 AM 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). ricardofurriel May 17, 2010 12:36:45 AM I have 4GB now. Do you really think I need more memory? I'm a noob sorry... Is overclocking also dependant on memory?

That's all many people use. jonnyboyC May 17, 2010 1:09:05 AM 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 ricardofurriel May 17, 2010 1:25:42 AM So I'm all set to OC with my build? Chuckles_ May 17, 2010 2:54:56 AM Yep, you're all set. You don't need a 750W for that setup to OC.
