The link for newegg isnt working for me...



Here are some results of a 7600 gs. http://www.neoseeker.com/resourcelink.html?rid=117922
The only major difference between this system and yours is that he's using a FX-57. So your frame rates wil be lower, not sure by how much though. When you have it overclocked at 2.5 there willn't be a huge difference.

No the motherboard can run it. With DDR 400 memory runs at 200mhz well when overclocking you sometimes run your memory at higher speeds. So DDR 500 is equal to 250mhz. The reason im getting it is so I can run my memory at higher speeds.

yes, you should if you want to overclock and run your memory at higher speeds.

Yes and no. My motherboard on my P4 supports up to DDR533 when a FSB 800 CPU is in there...meaning I can go there. Look at the manual first. If it says DDR400/433/450/500/533 You're good. If not, then OC it...and some suprises may happen: It could post DDR533!

That is because P4 like the extra memory bandwidth. If you run your cpu at 200FSB ( quad pumped to 800MHZ) and your memory at 266 (266x2=533) You will get extra bandwidth on the memory. You should always run P4s on a forward divider, ie. 2:3, 4:5, and likewise. The love the extra memory bandwidth.
