It looks like a pretty good card, I'm surprised that a factory overclocked version comes in the cheapest...

Could someone recommend good RAM for the first motherboard I mentioned and the second one?
First- 122-CK-NF68-A1 by EVGA
And the second one is the one with the link above.

Thank you to everyone who helped answer my questions.

Here is my result-

Core 2 duo E6750
EVGA 8800 GTS Superclocked
2Gigs Corsair
500 GB S-ATA Western Digital
Antec 900
Gigabyte 965P-DS3
OCZ Stealth PSU

I can finally play Rainbow Six Vegas!! :whistling:

Allright. Just a few more questions

How to overclock the GTS or is it already overclocked?

Should I download nTune? Does it make the warranty invalid?

If the GTS is the Superclocked version (as you have said) then it is factory-overclocked, so you can keep it running like it is and keep your warranty! You could possible overclock it more, but just try it for now, it should be fine for you.

Build looks nice, wish I had something like that!

EDIT: The P965 chipset will probably be fine for you, but the P35 is the newest one out and reports are that it's very good. If it's not too late, maybe you could return it for an upgrade? I thought you were going for the 680i chipset according to the last MSI post you made...

I chose the 965p because it was a very solid motherboard, and very good for overclocking.

The Nvidia Control Panel has an overclocker, but the memory bus speed goes only up to about 1100, and it won't even let me go up that far. What to do? ( yes, the card is the superclocked version )
