Maybe a DDR2 mobo and ddr2 memory? More about : stuff tisello July 27, 2009 5:27:41 PM plz notice it should be pci-express 2.0 Helloworld_98 July 27, 2009 5:30:55 PM you'll want triple channel memory for the i7 (3x2GB ideally) and you can't use DDR2 with the i7. And change the PSU to the corsair 650TX or at minimum the PCP&C 610w. Related resources Is this build good? I'm new to this kind of stuff - Forum Gaming Pc build.
