Why do you keep changing computer parts? It seems like you just keep changing stuff every week.

If you dont plan on overclocking just go with the 3500 though.

ok heres the thing i change the multiplier and then increased the FSB so that it was still at 2.2 or w.e and then i saved the changes and it never started up. everythign it running just nothing shows up on the screen and this lil device i got with the mobo says the cpu is damaged or installed wrong and its not installed wrong so ya. and ya i was thinking that too cuz its liek 15 more dollors for the opteron and its not 512 its 1gig so ya tahts another goody.

also are ram heatspreaders a good thing to buy ??/

did u try resetting the cmos on the motherboard with the jumper before u decided it was completely broken? yes ram heatspreaders are a good thing to buy, they help cool the ram and theyre not that expensive so u might as well get them

its just a jumper on the motherboard, read the motherboard manual and it will tell you where it is and what to do

EDIT: oh and what it does is reset the bios so all the changes u made are erased and its put back to default, the reason i know this is because ive had to do it a few times myself
