download cpuz at cpuid.com I believe. What is meant is that your FSB matches the speed of your ram...

Erm.. lets say i use an intel 975xbx mb(1066 fsb), and corsair twinx 6400c4. hw do i check my ram speeds and configure it to 1:1 wid my mb fsb?

Depends on your CPU. If you have a CPU that runs on a 200fsb, then you'll see the RAM @ 200mhz, so that'll be a 1:1

If you see a different ratio let us know by posting a screen shot of your CPU-Z readings.

What's the rest of your hardware?

Actually, i really built 1 yet. My current 1 is about 4-5 years old(very outdated, huh?).. so this is my 1st attempt to build a custom 1. What would you say if i went wid a core 2 duo e6600, intel d975xbx mobo, seagate 250gb 7200rpm/16mb/sata2.. The rest i'm still figuring out.. hehe.. any suggestions for ram or graphics card? Mid-range one though.. ><

I'd say go with the P5B Deluxe Wi-Fi motherboard, the P5W DH DLX is great also but I like to recommend the P5B Deluxe better.
