I picked up an Asus-P5N-E SLI
reasonably cheap (please spare me the opinions in this board unrelated to my question)
This board has "Memory Standard DDR2 800"
. I am not sure what this means. I already am sold on getting a 775 socket CPU. But this board may be replaced eventually. So ideally I want memory that can be moved to the new (more then likely faster rated for memory) board to be. I get confused by the memory speed ratings and what they mean to the board they are used in.
Does 800Mhz mean I can only use that speed or can I go with a faster memory. The reason for my confusion is the reviews/videos for this board talk about it's good ability to over clock, including the memory. They mention OC-ing it at speeds above 800Mhz :4-dontkno
Help me to better understand....I will be very thankful
But for now thanks in advance!
