First I got a question about ram.
With the board I got it says it takes DDR2 1066 240pin.


But it can support a maximum of 16 gigs of ram.
Don't ask why but I really want to max it out to 16 gigs.
But the problem is 1066 doesn't have a 4gig stick.

So could I use DDR2 800 4gig stick instead of using a DDR2 1066?
Im new to computer building and some people say yes and others say no i'm just trying to figure it out.



Also for a Monitor.
When I played BattleField 1942 it worked just fine on my old screen.
but when I play it on my 17 inch flat screen it always says.

"Out of Range."

Why is it I have trouble with that can someone explain it to me please?

unless you've got a 64 bit motherboard, processor and OS you're only going to be able to use 4 gb of ram anyway

try updating your graphics card drivers...you can find the newest version at your video card manufacturer's website

Thanks for the Insight.
I do plan on getting a 64 bit verson of seven when it comes out / a beta copy if I could find it.
