  1. Hi, New to the forum and pretty excited to build a PC I can over clock! Once I get the system built, I will be looking to start playing with over clocking... this system will be used primarily for general stuff, some video editing... no games. so, 1) first comes the processor... Either the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor or for $30.00 less, the AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor is there an advantage of one to the other????? then 2) the Motherboard.... I have no idea which one has the BIOS that could be better for a "newbe" ???? then 3) RAM!!! for the purpose of over clocking, I am guessing I should get DDR3 but which of the 10 different manufacturers? and 6 meg, 8 meg or??? Thanks so much for your insights! Randy

    How To Successfully Build A Computer

    Hi all! I am new to the forum and I am thinking of building a system (mostly general computing and some video editing no gaming). I want to overclock and want to purchase my components right the first time. I am wanting my total cost to be well under $1500 (I already have my monitor) but would like to get a processor that claims 3.2 to 3.4 without overclocking. It sounds like my first decision is a good power supply and cooling system inside a well ported case? suggestions for power and case? Thanks, Randy
