Try looking up some of these.
Choline (combines well with brain boosters)
Here's a short article on Piracetam. I would suggest stacking a few though, I'm using everything up there right now except L Tyrosine and Acetyl L Carnitine. Works great.
Piracetam and other structurally related nootropics.
Gouliaev AH, Senning A. Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University, Denmark.
Nearly three decades have now passed since the discovery of the piracetam-like nootropics, compounds which exhibit cognition-enhancing properties, but for which no commonly accepted mechanism of action has been
established. This review covers clinical, pharmacokinetic, biochemical
and behavioural results presented in the literature from 1965 through
1992 (407 references) of piracetam, oxiracetam, pramiracetam,
etiracetam, nefiracetam, and rolziracetam and their
structural analogues. The piracetam-like nootropics are capable of
achieving reversal of amnesia induced by, e.g., scopolamine,
electroconvulsive shock and hypoxia. Protection against barbiturate
intoxication is observed and some benefit in clinical studies with
patients suffering from mild to moderate degrees of dementia has been
demonstrated. No affinity for the alpha 1-, alpha 2-, beta-,
muscarinic, 5-hydroxytryptamine-, dopamine, adenosine-A1-, mu-opiate,
gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) (except for nefiracetam (GABAA)),
benzodiazepine and glutamate receptors has been found. The racetams
possess a very low toxicity and lack serious side effects. Increased
turnover of different neurotransmitters has been observed as well as
other biochemical findings, e.g., inhibition of enzymes such as
prolylendopeptidase. So far, no generally accepted mechanism of action
has, however, emerged. We believe that the effect of the racetams is
due to a potentiation of already present neurotransmission and that
much evidence points in the direction of a modulated ion flux by, e.g.,
potentiated calcium influx through non-L-type voltage-dependent calcium
channels, potentiated sodium influx through
alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid receptor gated
channels or voltage-dependent channels or decreases in potassium
efflux. Effects on carrier mediated ion transport are also possible.

I've heard good things about fish oil, Ginko bab, and tyrosine
