Windows 7 64bit More about : amd build Proximon March 12, 2010 9:49:12 PM 1. The processor has the memory controller, not the board. It will run at 1333, anything over that will be the luck of the draw and not terribly important anyway. 2. Probably. 3. Stop worrying about RAM frequency. Timings are more important but not a big deal either. 4. XFX is quality and has excellent service and warranties. m 0 l daman March 12, 2010 9:55:53 PM OK so should i get different ram cause probably isnt good enough. Where can i find out if this ram can work with this MB? m 0 l Related resources AMD budget gaming build help - Forum Need help with AMD build for gaming at 1080p with ultra/maxxed settings. - Forum Need help with a AMD PC Build! - Forum need help $2500 completely amd build - Forum [Community Help] AMD Low Budget $900 Gaming Build (UPDATED) - Forum Can't find your answer ?

The Crosshair III Formula is an older board that does not have the latest hardware, but it does have X-Fi sound. Either board is overkill really.
