u posted your details before.

just one thing, i hope your ram can do Cas2... or find better stuff. no point in having a performance hit there

Samsung like Crucial (although not to the same extent) underestimates the quality of their RAM. The RAM can easily handle CAS2.

so is setting the ram to cas2 just a simple matter of changing a cas setting in the bios? I've never played around with my ram settings in the past.. and also, is there a noticable difference between cas2 and 2.5? Or is it something you will only see in benchmarks

Yes, it's a simple matter of changing it in the BIOS. There probably won't be a huge performance difference, I would say ~5%.
