Go all out on the proc rather than RAM. The only thing that good RAM does for you is allow you to get a good OC and that proc will never OC to conroe performance

You might get a little boot out of it. Maybe to the Windows XP load up screen and then it will fail and your processor and maybe even the mobo will go POOF. So NO never EVER try using an amd processor on an intel mobo or vise versa

Absolutely no. Has everything been ordered yet? If not, cancel the order and we will suggest a better build. RAM is too high-end for your system and a waste of money that could be better utilized.

lol - no. The socket has to match up. Are you buying a motherboard or do you already have it?

would I be able to overclock something like this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115005
to around 2.8 ghz?

I already have the mobo, RAM, and video card, and I don't feel like returning it

I am not going to say YES but pretty close to around that speed (not with stock cooling)

IDK like a year ago or longer someone on these forums posted that he tried doing it (pins were fitting for some reason had to use force tho) and then his cpu died. That was a year ago. Don't know the truth behind it btw he was also a total noob lolz

stock cooling you can get that to 3 GHz.

ok ok ok, you need to cancel everything you have on order and give us a budget so we can give you real recommendations. you're going to screw yourself unfortunately. we can't let that happen.........

and no, AMD runs in s754, s939, am2 sockets. lga775 is a different pin configuration. won't even get the proc in the socket unless you have a mallet and maybe a mig welder
