So my question is should I go for the higher CPU or the faster Mhz ram?
(There different socket types so can not put intel into my Xfx board)

More about which setup
  1. Go for the faster CPU, RAM frequency makes a surprisingly small difference.
  2. Ah ok thanks,

    Just put the new system together and It turns on fans all start, but I get no signal on monitor, nothing comes up. Tried the on board graphics and a graphics card :S
  3. Which type of input are you using?
