  1. good day.

    Im a graphic artist, and I recently assembled a pc


    MSI P6N SLI V2
    intel c2d 2.33 conroe( i think)
    INNO 3D 76OO GT 512 DDR2
    80 GIG SATA( OS)

    i know i need to add one more memory to make use of dual channel on the motherboard or i can remove the 1 gig.

    Programs I usually use.... photoshop, bryce 3d, and planning to use 3d max and sketchup.

    i still have a 160 gig ide that i have not yet connected yet that I will use for the scracth disk and files that i will save.

    Question is.. is this set enough for me...

    should I change the memories to ocz 2 gig kits?
    what is the best cooler for the processor..( dont want to use the water things)

    should I change the motherboard.

    any comment will be appreciated..

    Thanks in advance

    Use 2gigs of RAM (or 2 1 gig sticks and 2 512s for 3gigs in dual channel) if you are using Vista or XP 32bit. Use 4gigs if you are using the 64bit versions of those OSes.

    You should be fine with that hardware.
