Default Re: Should I go with DDR2 800?

Maybe I'm a little foggy from being up half the night, but the ASUS P5E runs a 1333MHZ FSB, the E8400 runs on a 1333MHz FSB, and DDR2 1200 runs on a 1333FSB. Where's the problem with running DDR2 1200 if he can afford it?

cuz as the thread owner, wol-va-rine said, it wont fully utilize the entire capabilities of ddr2 1200. so whats the point of getting such expensive ram if it wont give you a boost as from 1066?

Because your attempt at an informed reply didn't answer my question now did it?

Why is that since the mobo, CPU and memory all run on the same bus speeds?

what wol-va-rine is saying is that buying such fast ram will not help him much because a motherboard that can fully utilize the capabilities of such ram has not been made yet.
