why did you get ddr-400 with a 333 fsb chip? I can understand this decision if you plan to overclock but not otherwise. Other than that I like your system.
I wish I had a computer but I am broke!!!

sounds like my system :P with your 2800 you can bump up the fsb on the stock hs&fan and you should have no problems. you can run at full bandwith all around.

I dont plan on overclocking, well yet that is, i have to learn a little morea bout it. The only reason why i got the 400 instead of the 333 was cause it was only 2 dollars more and eventually i can overclock the fsb liek u said if i wanted to
