I was wrong. That board supports 8x/8x so it's a great choice unless you want to go with DDR3.
Alright thanks. How severe is the bottleneck? The 440 is all I can afford at the moment and it got good reviews :s
If I were to make a jump to DDR3, I could maybe afford 1-2gbs of ram with the motherboard. Would it really be worth it to game for a month or so with 1-2 gbs in my system, even though the motherboard is well made?
