What should the relationship between the output voltage and the cap you use be? I assume there's a benefit to having the cap you pick's rated voltage as close as possible?

maybe say give a buffer room of 0.3v, between the highest volt u use and the rated cap, so that spikes do not go above the rating.
DDR3s you will be putting in 2+v so best to pick 6.3v.

the higher the voltage rating, the bigger it's size for the same amount of capacitance so theres no point in picking and way too oversized one.

ESR can be lower on a larger can capacitor (higher voltage same capacitance), althoug as Sham points out, you run out of sensible sizing range before the ESR will really make a difference to a switching circuit.

I think nothing can be understood 100% without hands on trying out, but i think those who hands on try out stuff can catch this

peter i am trying the mod out on a 280 gtx

when you say "500+UFs" would it matter if they were 2500 as i have some already or is it best to get some rated @ 500
