    I am building a new computer with the following parts:

    -AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice Integrated into Chip FSB Socket 939 Processor Model ADA3200BPBOX - Retail
    -ABIT FATAL1TY AN8 Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
    -ASUS EAX800XL/2DTV/256 Radeon X800XL 256MB DDR PCI-Express x16 Video Card - Retail
    -ePOWER Tagan TG-480-U22 ATX 480W Power Supply - Retail

    I am looking for decent 1g dual channel (2x512) RAM for a good price (under $130) for overclocking...

    I have been told that :
    OCZ DDR Booster Diagnostic Device Model OCZDDRVBOOST - Retail
    is a good product for RAM when overclocking:


    please leave your opinions on what RAM set...

    totally off topic here but im choosing a HDD now and Im wondering... if my MOBO is SATA II instead of SATA 150...
    which around 160gb-250gb HDD should i get.. some of the other comp specs are at the top.

    SATA2 connections (on the mobo) are backwards compatible with SATA1 connectors.

    I bought the corsair value ram - 1 gig dual channel with my venice 3200 - it has overclocked quite nicely
