Finaly been getting some money so now I will start building a new gaming comp :)

I think for saving some money I will go for the C2 4300 and then later in the year when the prices comes down I will get a nice C2Quadro CPU!

But im not really sure what the best memory to get, I know many have 6400 Mhz but wouldent it be better to just get some 8500Mhz ram as the quad I will get later probably has a 1333mhz bus and of course I will O/C as far as it can go :D

So what do you guys think ?

PS! The much needed money comes from that I sold my xbox 360 .it was just collecting dust mostly annyway heheh!

GO for PC2-8500, then underclock it.

I bought 6400, and I realized I should have got 8500 instead. Too late, though..

Yepp I think it will be the best to be more future prof and so and as you say underclock it for my 4300 seems nice so I can up the timings some!

Thanks mate :)

Just to point out. It is PC2-6400 which is 800mhz and PC2-8500 which is 1066mhz. Not 6400mhz and 8500mhz. Your going to confuse some people if you say it that way.
