ya its a socket 754 , so how on earth do i get the 1600 mhz out of it , faster cpu ? I would say faster ram but i can only run ddr 400 .
Another thing , I went to a socket 754 becouse of the fact that socket A is pretty much gone , and athlon xp cpu's are no longer being made , now reading around this site it seems that socket 754 is also old school , that really sucks seems i just spent 300 bucks on the cpu and mobo and really should have gone with 939 instead , wich would have cost me alot more but has a longer future ahead of it.
