Oh dammit... no they dont!!

Even if that's so, there HAS to be some eVGA dealer somewhere in Australia... and even if there isn't can't I just go for Leadtek or some other brand?

bigtrain i think your friend needs a brain, its not a motherboard issue its a CPU issue since the CPU has the memory controller built in and can only use what the CPU was designed for which is normal DDR

second one.. with the 3700+, but i dont know about the x600, if its anything like the 9600 it wont be able to play some of the games out atm with decent settings.

oh yeah and get a Seagate or Western Digital Hard drive with 8MB cache, those are the 2 best brands for HDs, also try get one with NCQ.
