Possible upgrade plans

Hey guys, long time reader of the site but a first time poster. I currently have a gigabyte GA-MA790x-ud4p motherboard which can run am2 and am3 cpus. I am currently looking into buying new ram (have to stay with ddr2), a quad core cpu, and a new video card. Here are the list of parts I want to get below.

As for the memory, I cannot find any good prices/deals on ddr2 1333 ram. Any suggestions on ram or comments on my parts selection would be very appreciated.

  1. Newegg doesn't offer ddr2 1333mhz ram. I think you meant 1333 OC so that means you will have to overclock your memory because the highest is 1100 and I think you should go with the 1066. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007611%20600006042%20600006066%20600006112&IsNodeId=1&name=DDR2%201066%20%28PC2%208500%29 Any one of those RAMs is a good choice. It's sad how expensive ddr2 rams are these days. What RAM are you currently using anyway? I wouldn't spend more than $65 on DDR2 4gb... Hell.. I got my 4gb ddr3 1600mhz for $20 [after $25 mir]...
  2. Good choice on the GPU and CPU though, buy a good cooler for the CPU wont you so you can OC it.
  3. Thanks for input guys, I am going to go with the kingston ram btw. As for cpu cooling, I have a vigor moonsoon 3 lt now and I think I should be good with that cpu cooling wise. I am now running one stick 2gb stick of corsair 800mhz ddr2 and one 1gb stick of some no name brand now (one of my memory sticks went bad). Another quick question, I am currently running a amd 6000+ x2 cpu and it runs around 39-47 Celsius on idle. Is that normal?

    Thanks.
  4. Just got my 5770 and the new ram, really nice stuff. In the next week or two im going to look into getting a new quad core cpu and windows 7 64 bit.
