graphics card: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/190974
motherboard: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/152574
ram(2x): http://www.ebuyer.com/product/190906

I also have a intel Q6600. and will be using windows 32bit.

Should the ram be placed in the two slots that match colour? or the two that are next to each other? (for dual channel)

From the looks of it, all this seems to be alright, should there be anything I should know about this motherboard? known problems or compatibility issues etc.

No problems that I can see, other than the fact that the LGA775 socket and DDR2 are obsolete.

RAM is generally placed in the same colored slots, but check the motherboard's manual to be absolutely sure.

thats why i picked the top end of DDR2, and i'd hardly say a q6600 is obsolete, maybe getting old. but obsolete makes it sound useless. Which it is far from.

Thanks anyway. Unless you can find a 775 socket with ddr3? thats under £100.

Obsolete doesn't mean useless. It just means it has been surpassed. And I only said the socket it uses is obsolete, seeing as Intel has since moved on to another two sockets.

Here's a a list of DDR3 LGA775 boards. It's in USD, but they should all be under 100 pounds.

Well with Ebuyer, i just went down loads of 775 motherboards, all the way up to £100 and couldnt find a single one that had DDR3. with the ip45 and ig45 chipsets been the most expensive. Looks like ill be sticking the the "obsolete" ddr2 ram.

Nvm, it seems they dont do ddr3 with the p45.

3rd one seems best as it seems to support 2 usb 3.0 devices.
