    Agree on the Gainward, by original 512 MB DDR do you mean the original RAM that came in your computer, or is this some kinda funny new brand?

    Otherwise I don't know the board but have heard nothign bad about it. And the Athlon 2200+ is a good bet.

    EDIT: That reminds me, now tat the cold weather is here, I can overclcok my thunderduck a bit more, cuz the cold makes my 5V line more stable. Don't ask. My computer is solid evil. No possession or incarnate, the real deal.

    Never heard of PoV so I can't say either way, but I'd recommend some Crucial, or Mushkin DDR. They seem to be tops right now. As for me I have cheap no name 256 DDR that I picked up at a computer fair $55 canadian each (got two).

    Me and my friend found screwdrivers and exacto-blades useful for tearing apart my old Dell, maybe that would work for you :naughty:
