Default Re: Will this stuff work?

I think I'm going to go ahead and wait until January to buy my new parts and build my new computer. My friend was telling me about the 45nm intel processors and they look really good. http://www.intel.com/technology/arch...ore2/index.htm
Is AMD coming out with anything like this soon? The prices are what really amazed me, what do you guys think about these new processors?

Yes they are. AMD is currently working with IBM on a joint project to go down to a 45nm process soon. Don't expect it out anytime soon though. Intel is way ahead of the game.

I'm looking at some OCZ Dual Channel 2048MB PC8500 DDR2 1066MHz Nvidia SLI-Ready EPP Memory (2 x 1024MB) and I'm wondering if it will work in a motherboard that supports 800mhz DDR2. Will the RAM automatically underclock to the motherboard's supported speed?

Yes but if you overclock then you can get the RAM to run at higher speeds than
800MHz

its already at a higher speed than 800Mhz... The question is, will 1066Mhz ram work in a motherboard that only supports 800Mhz?

I don't quite understand what you mean. For the RAM to run at 1066MHz, You will have to change this manually in the BIOS.

Eh nevermind. I have another question. If I were to get a new mobo, ram, and cpu could i just plug in my old hard drive and boot from it? It will still have the old mobo's drivers and stuff so would that be bad? Would I have to format the drive first?

It's best to format the drive, but it's possible by doing a repair install of Windows. Here's how:
