    i think that 4gigs helps but 4 gigs is absolutely ridiculous!!! i mean the money spent on that 4 gigs it's not worth... spent money for less oc?...hum... i don't think so... hehe!!!

    Due to limitations in 32 bit Windows XP only 3GB can be utilized anyways. Although for what he uses it for, more is certainly better. Besides, 4 sticks are required for dual channel making that a non issue/arguement. I have 2GB myself and it gets gobbled right up in some games. Besides, you could not overclock high enough in some games to make up the difference all that ram does.

    "Incidentally, the voltage for the Verto Gamer RAM Kitís dual DDR 600 modules defaulted to 2.6 volts. It was when I went into Windows and started EVEREST Ultimate Edition I got quite a shock: each module had a different latency setting stored in its SPD EEPROM! DIMM1 had a latency of 2.5-3-3-8 with a secondary latency of 2.0-3-3-8, and DIMM2 had a latency of 2.5-2-2-5 with a secondary latency of 2.0-2-2-5."

    Not quite, but close.

    Any Windows XP can only use 2GB of RAM for a single process and 32-bit processors can only utilize 4GB. However, most games use multiple processes, so using more than 2GB isn't too hard. Regardless, total RAM usage is more important than how much the game uses. For example, if the game uses 1.9GB, but you were already using more than 300MB, 2GB of RAM isn't enough.

    OK, that makes more sense now. I was also under the false impression that XP-64 bit didn't have that limitation.

    @ bf2nut. 3GHz should be doable with good air cooling or water. I have a 148 Opteron that easily does 3GHz @ 1.5V. Haven't had alot of luck getting anything higher perfectly stable, but it benches over 3.2GHz on good water cooling.
