bad idea, the board ur getting is AGP so when you migrate to PCI E, you will need a new board. There are boards that support DDR for system memory that supports PCI-E so if you do get the Asus board, you can potentially keep your old ram.
Im not to sure that board supports the presler 65nm cpu
thats been my experience with some asus boards.
a bios update will in most cases help support the newer dual core but check the suport forums at asus to make sure.
The P5P800SE, a PD 940 and that HyperX ram will work just fine... (you will need to update the BIOS on that P5P800SE first to the latest version)
"You wont be able to use that ram with the processor you're using. All Pentiums use DDR2 RAM, so your DDR won't work in it. You'll need to get some good ddr2 ram otherwise nothing will work."
bigsby... This couldn't be more wrong... every type of pentium will work with ddr1 ram so long as the board it's being installed in supports ddr... the P5P800SE uses ddr slots. My dad has a PD 930 with 2GB of ddr400 and it works just fine.
redmanc is right in that you can't put ddr2 ram into ddr1 slots. However certain boards that use ddr (like the P5P800SE) will work with any Pentium D 900 chip (although it will need a BIOS update first).
I was refering to the 65nm dual core support.
flashing the bios is a breeze.
the 05A platform support listing is curious.
the D920 is 65 nm dual core
and on the asus site it states 65nm single core support
Im not saying I dont believe you.
Im just amazed.
I have to see for myself.
going to order that for a gift.
I can always stuff a celey in it
seeing is believing
came a long way from the first time I saw this board.
I guess there is the original question at hand .
the kingston ram should be fine.
and another 512 X 2 should be in line to boost overall gaming if thats tyour intent.
I know there is faster ram but 1 gig more will have better results if you have the psu to push it.
you could have at least picked better boards and chipsets.... the only board even remotely good in terms of brand name is that Asus board, but i lost respect for it after seeing the VIA chipset. The OP said he wanted to stick with his AGP card anyway...
