but i was thinking of this case

That setup looks good. Are you using the powersupply from the case? It will probably be fine because the stuff you are using isnt really going to be demanding as far as power.

No the motherboard you are getting is the same on I have. Its a pretty good motherboard. It dosent have as many overclocking as some motherboards (like DFI) but its still nice.

yes im just getting it for SLI (just incase i have another 100 bux some day i will buy another 7600GS) and also the the nforce4 chipset which is great for gaming...also the socket is good...another thing is people say they can overclock their 3200+ from 2.0ghz to 2.5ghz easily but would the motherboard affect this??? thx

No the motherboard shouldnt really affect it as long as you get a good stepping on your processor you will be fine.

actually, the motherboard can affect overclockability. Vcore, VDIMM, and HTT limits will hinder the overclock. A good stepping is also good, too. But most of all, its the cooling that will hold you back.

Yeah but that motherboard willn't hold you back. Like right now I have it and the only thing that is holding me back from a higher overclock is my processor.

yeah, i was talking about motherboards in general. The way motherboards are made wont always overclock the same. Dont ask why, cuz i dont know. If you see Anandtech reviews, they use the same cpu, RAM, HDD, everything is the same except for motherboard, and some motherboards cant overclock that high.

@Xiggy: There are two kinds of 3200+, E6 and E4, get an E6 revision, it is newer and had better luck and overclocking.
