Looks fine to me, always get a second opinion on everything though.

Oh, by the way, you might be able to save some money by getting a gig of pc2700 RAM, b/c if you motherboard doesn't support pc3200, then that RAM you linked me to will just slow down to the speeds of the pc2700.

Bottom line: You can use that RAM you linked me to, it just will slow down to the speed of the motherboard (pc2700). It'll still work though.

I bet I just confused you. It's not a hard concept at all, I just suck at explaining things.

Wink yeah

basically quintox is right the ram u want is pc 3200 and ur mobo is using pc 2700 so thats probaly the highest ram u could use so i reccomend looking for pc 2700 ram. you could use the pc3200 but it will slow everything down it will have to underclock to match with the pc2700.

making more sense?
New build in progress, but this is what I got for now:
-AMD x2 5200+
-Asus M3A78-EM AM2+
-Buffalo 2x1gb ddr2 800
-Hitachi 250gb Sata HDD
-Antec Minuet Case w/ 350w psu
