Quick and Easy Motherboard Questions Tags: Motherboards DDR2 Dual Channel Product Last response: March 29, 2010 6:36 PM in Motherboards Share Quitoman March 29, 2010 5:30:44 AM 1. Can DDR2 800 ram work on a DDR2 1066 mobo? i.e. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 2. How much of a difference am I going to see upgrading from a mobo with FSB of 1000MHz Hyper Transport (2000 MT/s) to a FSB of 2600MHz Hyper Transport (5200 MT/s)? 3. Is it worth spending $40 - $70 to go from 4GB DDR2 Single-Channel (my mobo isn't working in dual-channel mode right now) to 4GB DDR2 Dual-Channel and also have the increase in FSB mentioned above?
