Here is what I got so far for my system that I want to build. I have about 3 processors on their and just trying to decide which one to get I am not going to get all 3. I still need to add RAM to it. Just having some trouble finding the right stuff. I try to use the guide on newegg but they dont show anything for a psq series. But I think I need DDR2 1200. 240 pin.
If you were strictly gaming i would get the 8500, but if you love multitasking get the Q6600.
How much do you have to spend on a vidcard? the 4850 and 4870 are amazing cards.
The board looks great and allows you to crossfire the above cards.
Get 4GB of DDR2 1066 and you will be set. (Good PSU/Case too)
you can push the speed of some 1066 Modules to DDR 1200, even if you dont it will work fine in your board.
But if you want the fastest DDR2 memory get DDR1200.... There will be VERY little performance increase like (1-2%). But some people will pay more for that.
Here is the DDR 1200 I would get, if you choose that route.
