-Acer F690GVM motherboard
-AmD Phenom(tm) 9500 quad-core 2.20GHz.
-2GB DDR2 Rams

if you overclock? thats the cpu to get at the moment.

mate it to your fav board maker's offering, anywhere from about 150 and up are quite nice featured. ud3/4 from giga, and so on.

Even though it is on the less expensive side 8GB i think is excessive if all you do is gaming. Hell you could get away with a 2500 as again overclocking just for games such as stacraft you wont notice any improvement. Overclocking and 4+GB is ram is mainly for non-standard usages such as protein folding, encoding, etc which really use the full potential of the cpu and need that much ram.

I agree about the fact that 8GB is a little overkill, but we got to buy RAM when the price is low, and this is the right time!

I seen somewhere on DIGITIMES that the RAM prices (silicon) might go up in a few months.

I'd just say, that it SEEMS like a good idea to grab 8GB is you're building a new Sandy rig right now...
