    Hi there, I was planing to buy a PC on this friday, I had it on the paper; all the components were compatible (a friend from here helped me to choose them). But now the mobo is not for sale anymore, so I have chosen another one.

    Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R
    http://www.pccomponentes.com/GIGABYTE_GA_EP45_UD3R_SOCKET_775.html

    And this are the RAMs
    http://www.pccomponentes.com/MUSHKIN_REDLINE_DDR2_PC2_8000_4GB_2X2GB_5_5_5_15.html
    http://www.pccomponentes.com/G_SKILL_EXTREME_PC2_8000_DDR2_1000_4GB_2X2GB.html

    The G.Skill ones seem to not be compatible (they are not on the list), but what about the Mushkin ones?

    The CPU is an e6320, changing to q6600/q9300/e8500 soon =x

    Thanks ;)

    Both ram's will work fine. Grab a Q6600, it's wicked fast!!!

    I personally like the G.skills better. They are the most reliable.

    I've been told by a friend that those G.Skill are better since the Mushkin may give problems, thnks ;) I'm buying them this weekend :)

    So, after several days, this is the result.

    And here is the question:
    Since the RAMs can get up to 1GHz at 2.1V, should I raise the voltage and frequency or keep the 1:1?
    (And by the way, I have tried it twice and failed, couldn't boot the PC)

    Doing Pi1M in 18.7 seconds, I'm very proud of my first self-built PC =D
    (Not the best PC on world, but a very good one for 480€ =D )
