    Help with system spec

    I am currently running an AMD 3700+, Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe, 2 gig of Geil PC3200 and a 512mb X1900XT. All in an Armor LCS with Fluid XP as the coolant.

    At the end of next week I was thinking of going over to a Core 2 duo. I mainly use my system for playing games. Can anyone recomend me a motherboard memory and processor that will overclock to 3 gig for about £400 - £450?

    I welcome any suggestions on improving on what I already have.

    BTW. I am using a Laing pump with 3/8 tubing and my CPU, GPU and board are all liquid cooled.

    theres quite a few that will do the trick for that price, it wont be hard finding something suitable, But more on preferences, like sli or a asus motherboard over a abit one, but in general

    Asus P5B Deluxe
    Intel Core 2 DUO E6600
    2GB Corsair PC2-6400C4 DDR2

    That should do the job of overclocking to 3 gig. But then again most of em will do now (touch wood!)

    i guess from the fact your using water cooling that your not scared of overclocking. an e4300 would be right up your street. leaving you with some extra money to do with as you please

    I agree. But i'm sure your set-up could handle a good overclock on a E6600 aswell.
    P5B deluxe wifi mobo
    OCZ 2gb Platinum Revision 800mhz RAM. OR that OCZ RAM that has the option of watercooling on its heatsinks. Can't remember the model.

    All those are OC friendly and will appreciate the H20 as a kind gift, although they don't really need it.

    Thanks for the help everyone. What are your thoughts on 6400 Crucial Ballistix? I can get this for £124 for 2 Gig. I am still looking for the cheapest place to get an Asus P5B Deluxe and Intel Core 2 DUO E6600, unless you know?
