Hello, I recently started building a new pc. The parts I have left over from my last one are 9800gtx and 2gb of ddr2 667. I'm trying not to spend much but if I have to I will trying to keep it within a budget. Was going to buy another cheap stick of kingston for $25 for 3gb total ram.

CPU - AMD Phenom II x955
Motherboard - GA - MA785GM-US2H rev 1.1
Ram - Kingston 2gb 667
Evga 9800gtx+

I plan to overclock the cpu to about 3.8ghz in the end, Will the 667 affect me much if any? Also would I see more of a improvement getting a better hard drive as in a raptor or ssd?
