alright, im planning on upgrading to a core 2 duo e6550 (2.33ghz) from my trusty athlon 64 3700+ (@ 2.8). im definitely planning to overclock it, but i have a question about memory. the motherboard I picked out says the ddr2 standard is ddr2 1066. if I buy ddr2 800, will the cpu still run at the correct speed, and will I be able to overclock well? or will I have to buy ddr2 1066. another question, if either will work, is it worth it to blow the extra cash for ddr2 1066?
side topic: how far can i expect to overclock with the e6550? im hoping 3ghz+, or should I throw in $20 more for the e6750. would the e6750 have much more overclocking potential than the e6550?
