Default Re: Match memory to MB listings only?

if i'm just working on putting together my parts list for a new build and i've been back and forth about a few things so i kind of want to make sure it will last for a while so i may look at pci-e 2.0 and ddr3 ram. been debating other choices like 64-bit vista vs. 32-bit, and core 2 duo vs. quad....choices, choices...plus, have to keep a budget in mind.

i would like to spend a little as possible, but i also know that i'm not going to be happy with a slow computer either, especially if i spend my money to build a new one just to get an updated faster computer than what i'm on now.

Yep go 1066MHz when you do, DDR3 will be cheaper in a year or so, but at present it is insanely expensive, these two sticks are worth ~$A600, there is no way I would have paid that much for them, I wouldn't have this pc if I hadn't won that memory, the m/board was $A300+ as it was.

and thanks for the ram advise true folder,,i'll go the 1066 route if i do go through with a desktop build.

Default Re: Match memory to MB listings only?

that right there is a GREAT build. but to think of it what u could do is get his
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103194
and OC it to about 3.1 stable.
and then use that other 60$ for a nice burner. sounds pretty sick, im drooling
