As long as the motherboard is compatible with the processor and memory type it will work. My friend built a computer and he said that if you build a computer it is all about compatibility. Just make sure everything is compatible and it will work. I recommend Asus and Gigabyte motherboards just to let you know.

I am finding that the newer faster memory just doesnt seem that fast to me. I have a intel prescott3.0(foxconn intel 865) with PC3200(DDR-400) memory that opens programs faster than my cedarmills intel 3.0( gigabyte intel 945 MB) and PC5300(DDR-667) memory computer. Both have the same amount of ram and approx the same things runing. I wonder if it is the CAS 4 timing that makes it slower rather than the CAS 3 timing of the PC3200 memory. Both computers work well its just the 945 board is slightly slower.
