hey guys i just ordered

mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and im wanting to get an 8800 GT for it. but does the mobo have PCI-Express 2.0 or what im confused.

also it says it supports cpu fsb frequencys of 1333/1066MHz, so does it not support 800 mhz because i wanted to order

Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 Allendale 2.2GHz which runs at 800.

That board supports PCI-E 2.0(PCI-E 2.0 is backward compatible with PCI-E 1.0 ) and E4500, so dont worry

Maziar can you tell me how you got that. I was looking at manufacturers product pages on some MOBO's and didnt see anything about it being a PCIE 2.0 Board.
Are you saying it is a 2.0 board or that it will run a 2.0 card as the cards are backwardsly compatable.
If its the former can you let me know where it shows this so i can tell for myself in future.
Thanks Mactronix
