I should buy a motherboard that has the same FSB right?
What does a processor's cach size do? should I go for 2M or 4M?
And, I'm looking for a motherboard with onboard video and audio because I won't be using a card for display. But would new mobos have EIDE/ATA so my old HDDs could run? if not, what hsould I do about my old HDDs?
And my old power supply is ATX, is that the same as 24-pin ???
and is express atx same as ATX?
So I really really like this processor:
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail
and I like these two motherboards:
Newegg.com - Intel BOXDG965WHMKR LGA 775 Intel G965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
This one has HThreading noted, different southbridge, less SATA ports, less audio channels, no SATA raid:
Newegg.com - Intel BOXDG965RYCK LGA 775 Intel G965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
And this is the memory I like:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
Now the reviews say those INTEL boards are very sensitive about memory and you cannot change the memory voltage in BIOS. They take 1.8v. But the corsair memory is 1.9 v. Do you guys think that it's enough to put doubt on whether the memory will work or not? in that case how about this: Newegg.com - Kingston ValueRAM 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
Thanks for looking over them.
