    Alright, after some time, I will finally be building a complete computer system myself.

    I was put on a very strict budget, so here what I have to deal with...
    - Intel Core Duo 2 E4300 CPU
    - Gigabyte GA-P965-DS3 Mobo
    - eVGA 7900GT KO GPU
    - OCZ Special Ops 2GB (2X1GB) PC6400 800Mhz DDR2 (OCZ2SOE8002GK)
    - Ultra X-Finity 600Watt PSU
    - 250GB and 80GB Seagate SATA 7200RPM

    All part's have already been ordered, so I think it's too late for a change.

    I will be looking to overclock the CPU, but I am a complete noob to overclocking, so please help me with that. I also heard that my mobo is perfect for overclocking, so I hope it is.

    Please post any comments about my build, and I will update this thread as the parts come in.

    seems like a decent mid-range rig , i would first read the overcloers guide on here first and then ask if you start to stuggle as that gives some really helpful advice


    also some guy wrote a very good guide on overclocking core duo's on P965 chipset somewere but i cant find it

    EDIT: i obviously didnt look hard enough first time
