The higher speed memory can give you a little more headroom for overclocking. Just curious though, why not go with the Phenom II 955 BE since you can get it for essentially the same price as the 945.

It really only matters if your going to be overclocking. If you're not planning on overclocking go with the 1600mhz, but if you are planning to, go with the 1800.

what are the Cas levels with those sticks?

Why are you getting a Casegears power supply? For how much they cost you can get a better quality Corsair unit.

Ddr3 1800

DDR3 1800 8-8-8-24, WENT WITH THE 945 PHENOM AT THE TIME BECAUSE OF BUDGET. WANTED TO STAY UNDER 1 GRAND...I see now price is different compared to 955 phenom BE.

Additional Comment:

sorry I just seen new post. This is a first time custom build. So I am learning and trying to go by what I've seen on these forums and reviews. Yes will be looking to overclock safely! Been looking on here for all the help I can get, so when all together can clock, etc.. Old computer a HP desktop. Never did much before except change memory and vid card. So a little nervous, and excited about this adventure..thanks everyone
