So the Opty with 250 FSB and a 9x multi will run at 2250 Mhz, where as the Sandy at a 250 FSB and a 11x multi will run at 2750 Mhz. The Opty would not be able to run at its full potential. I do not know what the FSB limit is for that motherboard, but seeing as how it is not high end, I do believe it will not be that high. My recommendation would be the Sandy.
