I need help making sure all of these different items are compatible the only questions that I have are the processor and motherboard fsb speed do not match. The motherboard says that it is 1000mhz is that "can support up to 1000" or the "processor you use has to be 1000mhz" ?? Will I have to change the core or clock speed of the processor to match the board or vice versa and will that change the speed of ram that I will need ?? also the memory says that it is unbuffered, what does that mean ?? these are the parts im looking at. bear in mind its a cheap gaming rig for the wife =)

Itll work together fine


you shouldnt need to change anything in your bios..it should all outodetect.

That memory will work fine, but its not performance memory, its got so-so timinigs

this stuff' ">http://www.newegg.com/Product/...p?Item=N82E16820145450 is a bit better..costs more though...

Also the mobo only has an AGP slot..not a big deal really but alot of vid cards are moving towards PCI-E its really not a problem as of now, but in the furute its possible it may limit you choices of video card...

Thats all i really have to say...if you do get what you metninoed it should run great Anyways and will save ya some money. jsut giving some O me thoguhts is all.

(if your not hardcore into games and stuff you can probly ignore everythnig Ive said)
