Im running a : Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8500 @ 3.16GHz (2 CPUs), ~3.2GHz Memory: 2048MB DDR2 RAM Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: GeForce GTX 260 Display Memory: 1648 MB Dedicated Memory: 881 MB Shared Memory: 767 MB Current Mode: 1920 x 1080 (32 bit) (60Hz) Monitor Model: LG TV and I've been thinking about upgrading to an i7 at least, and il need to upgrade my motherboard and RAM to do so. I've had my eye on : Intel Core i7 970 3.2GHz LGA1366 Processor - 3.46GHz TB; 6x256kb L2; 12MB L3; 6 Core 12 Thread with Corsair DDR3-2000 12GB (3x4GB) Dominator GT with DHX Pro Connector and Airflow II Fan Memory Module Kit running on Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 IX58 Motherboard w/A8 + 2LK + FWa + USB3 + SATA6 RAID Any ideas if this setup will work and be compatible, especially with regards to the speed and voltage of the RAM? *Keep in mind its going to be used primarily for gaming and that im not really an overclocker, so i wont really need any OC features More about : awesome ram work awesome moboard geekapproved a b } Memory June 9, 2011 8:56:45 PM You don't want to build on s1366.
