X4 955 / HD 5850 / Asus 890gx / Gskill 2x 2gb

now the million dollar question:

Will

Cooler Master Hyper 212 + Antec Earthwatts 650 PSU + Antec 300 Illusion ATX case

hold overclocking with no issues? Or shall I think about getting a 750w+ PSU?

Thank you

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).

I have 4GB now. Do you really think I need more memory? I'm a noob sorry... Is overclocking also dependant on memory?

No, OCing is not memory dependent. 4GB should be fine. That's all many people use.

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

Yep, you're all set. You don't need a 750W for that setup to OC.
