Hi

Would a ASUS P5KPL/1600 1333FSB (Intel G31) Motherboard work ok with the following ? :

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 (4 x 2.66 GHZ) 1333FSB - 6 MB
Corsair XMS2 4GB PC-6400 800 MHZ (2 x 2 GB) - Lifetime Warranty (DDR2)
ATI Radeon HD 4870 - 1 GB - 2xDVI/VGA (Palit) - OverClocked

I'm not planning on doing any overclocking or adding any thing else to the system (well maybe another 4870 - 1GB in years time or so if the prices go down enough). I'm planning on keeping this rig for 3 years roughly.

Thanks

Thanks for that

Just out of interest would I see much (if any) of a performance improvement if I went for a ASUS P5Q 1600FSB (Intel P45) instead of the above mentioned card and is it worth the £40 extra ? - even if I'm not going to be overclocking it or adding a 2nd card later
