    Is it worth it?

    I have an Onboard Realtek ALC888 and want to buy the Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer (NOT the Pro Fatality). If I buy it, will I hear the diff. ? In other words - Is an upgrade from the ALC888 to the Creative X-Fi Xtremegamer worth it? PS For gaming, I don't care about music.

    Memory Speed and CAS latency awesomeness!

    Lets say that i get some good ol' ddr2-800 G.Skill CAS 5 RAM. Can i underclock it to 533mhz (on a core 2 duo), and lower the CAS to 2? Wouldn't that offer a performance increase as long as I don't overclock? 533mhz vs. 800mhz on a stock setup is an equal contest right?

    P2 720, 940 am2 am3?

    Sorry for sounding like a newb here but i am a little confused. the Phenom II 940 and uh, 810 (i think) can run on either an am2 or am3 mobo because they support both DDR2 and DDR3 the Phenom II 710 and 720 will only run on an AM3 because they only support DDR3. am i correct?
