Question Two Questions

I have two questions to ask. First, considering that my MB is this http://www.biostar.com.tw/products/m...U8668-D%20v4/5 one, does that mean that my max memory speed is PC2100?! Second, if that is the case, instead of buying an AGP 6600gt for my compy, should I get a whole new MB, faster memory, and get a PCI-ex instead? Help? BTW: I am on a rather tight budget

Yeah, you can always overclock, but yeah, that's your max setting. I would save up for the m2 mobo, amd, when it comes out this summer. Or you can get a system now and it would still last you a while. If you really want to get a new system basically, go ahead. The same components today will be a lot cheaper when the m2 comes out but then again they'll be obselete too. It's your choice.

It would be better to have 2gb of ram,. but that's $$$. A new graphics card would help. I would get the graphics card.
