I just read I can use PC4000 in some MoBo's. I want to build my 1st PC and have just gotten a thermaltake Case, 2 Maxtor Diamondmax 200gig HD's and a dual layer +/- DVD writer.
Mostly an internet and gaming machine. Will use a 3800 SC CPU to start. Should I use the 3200 or 4000? If the 4000, what MoBo's support it? Overclocking, does one do better than the other?
Also, I heard that say, if I wanted 4 gig of RAM I would be better to do 2 sticks of 2gig than 4 sticks of 1 gig, then I read the opposite, what gives?
What are these "timing numbers" I keep reading about?
I want to build a good upgradeable foundation.
Suggestions? Bare in mind I am a newb to alot of this stuff so be gentle. :wink:
