yes... but gives a crap about the 128bit bus... for $100 thats really good overclock.... read this... Maroon showed it to me... and he's usually right about pretty much everything... so he's a trustable source... and this is at overclock.net #1 overclocker's forum out there...

I have another question, this build will be able to use Ubuntu right, cuz I was talking to someone saying Linux has specific hardware compatibilities and not all hardware will work..just wanting to make sure as I will be using that for basically everything except playing games.

Yes, it will be able to run Ubuntu. You're dual-booting, right? Keep in mind that for every driver you install on the windows partition, you will also need to install on the ubuntu partition, and probably a specially coded binary version. I know that nvidia has binary drivers available for their video cards, you should be fine.

Also if you're getting Ubuntu, be sure to get the latest version, "Feisty Fawn" aka 7.04, and be sure to download the Beryl desktop manager it has very good graphical desktop effects... better than those on a Mac even.

it can run Ubuntu... but not sure if you can get all the drivers... what i recommend is go with Virtual Machine, and like install Windows.. and it runs Ubuntu in Windows.
