ok here is the question, I want to get maximum performance out of this PC, I do editing and gaming on this i have just upgraded my ram and CPU cooler to the above. I am now planning on getting another 500GB HDD for RAID 0. would this make my boot up time and application start up time faster and what other benefits will I get, also what should I overclock my cpu to. I am currently on 3.39GHz and if I go any further my PC blue screens. also what voltages. I do not want to damage my PC I just want better performance, my idle temps atm are 32 - 33c, also AMD over drive is telling me that my memory speeds are 800, is that 1600MHz in dual mode or something? if there is anything else that you would recommend please let me know.
