Just the fact its at 3.0ghz, but Quad would be faster when games become future proof

That mobo supports 64 bit Vista right? I can't find anywhere where it says...and I read to make sure that it does otherwise you'll get random reboots and whatnot.

Ya only worry you would have is that the CPU isn't 64bit, and pretty much any Athlon64 + and P4 2.0ghz + can do it

Thanks for all the info and help guys, it really helps me out a lot.

Another question..will the CPU or motherboard require me to purchase any cooling devices? Also, this is my first build in my life and I hear a lot about thermal paste, specifically Arctic Silver 5. How does that work? I'm really worried cause I don't wanna just fire this thing up and have it fry.
