Why would he need DDR2 1066 or higher? The "memory standard" rating on a board doesn't really mean anything. It's just the fastest speed they're rated to run at. They can run RAM at any speed below that.
I'm not doubting you, I had just never come across the listing on Newegg where it didn't list the lower speeds separately or possibly just never really noticed before. It makes sense, but I always assumed they listed the minimums and maximums. Guess I've learned my one thing for the day.
Hi, sorry was busy over the weekend...Shotstuff I was thinking of that same mobo originally but wasn't sure if his cpu would be compatible. I found out his details and then looked it up on gigabyte's website if the mobo supports it. q6600 and ddr2 800mhz ram.
So yes, he bought that mobo yesterday and everything works fine! thanks guys!!
