If it is just for say, folding - then I wouldnt bother.
MOST motherboards will support the higher end DDR (if you can still find it) even though they state 3200.
If you spend the money on higher end memory and a power supply - why not just add that to your savings for a new one ;)
Unless you drastically need the speed for video editing, cad programs, etc - the overclocking hype isnt all it is cracked up to be. Overclock 300mhz and save yourself 2 minutes on encoding time - WOW - WOOHOO - lol - unless you go for the EXTREME overclocks, it doesnt do a whole lot in real world terms.

IF I am going to take this in steps I suppose the PSU would have to be first since I could then try Ocing the whole system which at the very least would give me somethng to play with while I saved. I could add 2 more 512 sticks to have a total of 2GIG in 4 sticks...
