1. Quoting the Episode II: Attack of the Chipsets article regarding the 845G:
"Its memory controller is made for DDR memory based on the PC1600, PC2100, but also PC2700 or DDR333 standard."
If this is indeed the case, why can't I find any 845G motherboards that include the "DDR333" part in their memory interface description? They all seem to talk about DDR200/266. Why no DDR33?
2. I know that hardware incompatibility issues sometimes arise. That is, I buy brand X soundcard and it doesn't work well with motherboard Y. Now, is this an issue with Y's manufacturer or Y's chipset? For certain stability and compatibility, are Intel motherboards the way to go?
