  1. With my birthday coming up I thought it would be good to give my pc a boost so I have lined this up a a possible upgrade.

    I have £100 to spend (give or take) and would want to upgrade to a new motherboard for better overclocking as my current refuses to go over 3.6ghz. Obviously a new motherboard will be an am3 so new ram is needed. I've seen this corsair ram alot in various value pc builds so I figured at £30 it will be perfect. I also picked this motherboard because of its crossfire capability. Since the hd 6870's have fallen considerably in price I plan to get a second near Christmas.

    Any thoughts? Thanks :D
