Ok so I know I have been starting threads like crazy but I'm trying to get all the answers for my upcoming purchase program. Basically I'll be getting a motherboard, quad core CPU, and a copy of OEM Windows Vista although I'm not sure exactly what version of any of those it will be. I do know it will only be around 200 to 250 bucks for all of it. However based on a little research and comparisons to past programs I think the motherboard will be possibly a DG33TL board, the processor could be a Q6600, Q6700, Q9300 or a Q9450, and the Vista is like 32-bit Home Premium. Basically the RAM and video card is up to me. I'll be getting the 9800 GTX but the RAM I'm stuck. If I get the Q6600 or Q6700 I'll be overclocking the FSB to 1333 MHz so that I can get 3.0 GHz or 3.33 GHz resoectively and if I get the 9300 or 9450 I'll be going to 3.0GHz or 3.2 GHz by overclocking the FSB to 1600MHz. Here is where I run into a problem. In either case the 1333MHz or 1600MHz FSB far exceeds the fastest DDR2 of 1066 MHz (standard) or 1111 MHz (OCing quality). What should I do? Should I ditch the DG33TL board for one capable of using DDR3 for the faster speeds so I have a 1:1 between RAM and CPU FSB frequencies? Or will the performance of having a ratio less efficent than 1:1 not be such a performance hit as to switch to the lower latencied DDR3? If I stick with DDR2 do I get DDR-800, DDR2-1066 or pay a premium for the rar DDR2-1111? Or am I not getting something and this is perfectly ok? I'd really appreciate the help I have been racking my brain on this.
