Planning to buy a new comp and here are the specs that ive put together:

MSI GeForce 6800GT 256MB GDDR3 AGP, NX6800GT-TD256, DVI/TV-Out, Retail = 4199kr

Chieftec Dragon Big Tower m/dörr Svart Kabinett, DA-01B-D, 360W Nätaggr. = 1195kr

MSI K8N NEO Platinum Edition S754 nForce3 250GB,SATA,GbLAN,ATX,Raid = 1190kr

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.2 GHz Socket 754, 512 KB cache, BOXED = 1990kr

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 200GB S-ATA 8MB cache 7200RPM = 1150kr

2st Crucial PC4000 BallistiX DDR 512MB CL2,5 Non-parity, 2.8V, 32Meg x 64, 184pin = 2858kr

Total: 12582kr

In Swedish krones.. (One US$ is 7,18 swedish krones)

My question is, will the memories work good? will I notice any difference from 3200 memories? should I get better?
And any other comments, suggestions, improvements on the configuration?


Edit: Just read that the MB doesnt support 4000 memories so how about replacing em with 2 TwinMOS PC3200 DDR-DIMM 512MB CL2.5 Minne 184-P (för DDR-PC400MHz) (AMD OK) 829kr a piece??

That memory is top quality. It's set to run Cas 2.5-3-3-8 by default for speeds up to DDR500. That gives you pleanty of room for overclocking. But if you don't plan on overclocking soon, you can set those modules at Cas 2-2-2-8 for better performance at DDR400. Some people have tested at Cas 2-2-2-5 at DDR400 and claim they work fine.
