Default Mother boards and DDR RAM?

I bought a 64 bit AMD 3200 which is a nice CPU. However I also bought a
piece of crap motherboard and RAM and I ended taking everything back. I did
however buy a really nice case with a 420 watt power supply. Now if I want
to build a nice computer what type of motherboard and PC DDR 3200 memory
would you suggest?

For RAM use Crucial. Which motherboard did you buy? The top rated board
for the 939 pin Athlon 64 is the MSI K8N Neo 2 Platinum.

DDR 3200 memory would you suggest?

I recently put together a new A64 3200+ with an MSI Neo2 Platinum.

If you don't want to OC the RAM too much the Patriot/PDP dual channel RAM
kit PDC1G3200LLK is very good and cheap (it's what I'm using).

Here's the RAM:

&depa=1


@ 200 MHz it runs at 2.0-3-2-5

I'm overclocked, running the CPU @ 2500MHz and the RAM @ 208 (which
required me to set it to 2.5-3-2-5 at the stock voltage. I haven't tried
pushing the voltage one the RAM).

MB, take your pick of any of the newer chipsets with a PCI lock if you
plan on overclocking. Ram, get PC4000, not PC 3200.
