Default Yes. Another new system. Please advise.

I am building a top end machine very soon. I know everyone here is probably sick and tired of geting you all to inspect their decesions, but please know that i am ACTUALY building this machine and i do appreciate you advice and comments.

I have probably overlooked something, who knows. just checking that all these parts are compatible and if anyone knows of any inherent defects please advise.

thanks.

All other parts I will be buying on impulse at the computer fair.
Also, does anyone know what overclocking potential this cpu has?

Thanks.

well, whatever you are using these for , you know this system is like ... never... gonna die on you. if you have enough money and stuff and you know it will be good for you, go for it. and .. you will have more than "high" bechmarks on games lol good choices though

I notice that amd mbods do not yet support ddr2. but i have heard that ddr in an amd system is actually faster than ddr2 in an intel sys.

is this an apt claim ?
