Well Tri i have money left over on my budget and i think i'm going to get this mobo right here.
It'd be about 20 bucks more but thats my budget right there. it just seems like a better board than the Biostar Tforce, although im sure i could reach 3.2+ on both i hear that that version of the P965 can reach speeds slighlty above 400 FSB. A few people said they had it around 429 or something in their FSB at 429x9 or something.
Should i spend the extra money as oposed to $105 mobo? It says only 10 more but there was a combo with the Biostar with a C2D. Worth the extra 20 bucks? Becuase i dont have to fill my budget, i could have 20 bucks already into another GB of ram or something instead.
Last about the voltage that Gigabyte board is said to only run at 1.8 standard meaning to even get to the options to turn it to 2.0v ram i would need like a cheap stick of 1.8v to turn it up?
Sorry if it seems though i'm asking alot of questions but i'm trying to figure out the whole OC thing right now.
DDR2-800 is actully 400mhz right? meaning it would be a 1:1 ratio of your CPU FSB is 400 right? I also hear a 5:4 ratio is better or so, but is this true? That wouldnt mean DDR-900 with 400 FSB on the CPU right?
Once again sorry if I ask too many questions heh
