please help me to choose memory. I want to use GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3P board and according to the specifications: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16813128083 it has a fsb of 1600 (O.C.)/1333/1066 requiring DDR2 1200 (O.C.)/1066 memory. Which memory can I use? I want to use 4GB(2x2GB). In other forum some members have suggested using ddr2 800 but the minimum fsb of the motherboard is 1066. How do I do this it if it's possible. I am a newbie so should I stay with 1066 as I don't know about overclocking.
rs - those specs for the MB are not the minimums -- you can always run memory or the MB at a slower speed than its rating. You've chosen an excellent MB. As a rough rule, take the FSB of your Intel CPU and divide that by 2 to get the speed you should run your RAM at. For example, if your CPU is running at a 1333MHz FSB, set your memory bus to run at DDR2-667 speed.
Finally, stay away from OCZ RAM, as they tend to overclock their RAM further than other manufacturers, and this leads to compatibility problems.
