im gettin my friend a new computer that has to be cheap. so i decided to get him this : GA-945GZM-S2 and the e6300. afterwards i noticed that the 945 only supports FSB 800, but the web said it can do 1066 with OCing. im unsure of wether just to scrap the e6300 for the e4300 or OC. my friend will do lots of photoshopping + flash works. Also i dont think he will want to hear that ive oced ( and voided warranty ) to oc. actually, i think the cpu will only run at 1.4Ghz if i dnt oc it? so e4300 fsb 800 or oc the e6300 back to orig speeds?
ill be pairing with 533ram

The E6300 runs stock with a 266MHz FSBx2 for 533MHz or PC3200. To run CPU bus with memory at a 1:1 ratio, overclocking to 400x2=800MHz would result in a 50% overclock, which is what I am doing with my E6600 using an 8x multiplier.
