I am trying to help my brother configure a reasonably priced new PC, but I have been away from the component selection process for a couple of years and feel a little helpless. I'd like your opinion on this.
To support his legacy stuff, it would seem like the Intel mobo D102GGC2L would work. For performance and low power needs, I like the Intel Pentium D 915. The mobo says 800/533 FSB and "memory standard DDR2 533", but the D915 says 800 FSB.
Let's stay with Intel. My questions:
1. Is this a match made in heaven or does it suck?
2. Will DDR2 800 memory work ok or am I wasting my bro's money by not going with DDR2 533?
