quick question memory speed

DDR2-900 is probably just DDR2-800 that is guaranteed to overclock to 900. It won't autodetect as 900, you'll have to manually set the memory settings.

Nope i looked at my invoice and called. There was a 32 bit OS in a 64 bit OEM wrapper. Oh boy will this be fun trying to straighten out.
