A8N-E help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all I'm new here. Been browsing a while but still don't really know crap about crap. I have been having problems while gaming in which my display driver goes into an infinite loop(7600 GT). I think that it might be my memory and I want to get better memory anyway. I have the A8N-E motherboard and amd 3800+ with corsair pc3200 DDR400 ram. I can't seem to really figure out what the numbers mean on the ram. I want the best possible memory I can get for this motherboard I'm just not sure what it can take.

According to the ASUS site: Memory 4 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 4GB DDR400/DDR333/DDR266 ECC/ non-ECC un-buffered DDR SDRAM memory
Dual Channel Memory Architecture

Does this mean I can't get better than DDR400???? And can I get a number higher than PC3200 for it?? I know this is a simple question but I just can't figure it out. Like I said I want the best possible memory I can get. Help would be greatly appreciated =D

Yes you can run a max of ddr500 ram on that motherboard. As if its the same as mine has a 250 option under ram speed, and the plus also is that if you oc you can start with your fsb at 250 and the ram speed at 200.

Ok I've decided that its time to get some new stuff and I'm thinking G.Skill for sure on the memory but I don't know about a motherboard. Any suggestions as to a good motherboard which will allow me to overclock the gskill hardcore?? Also, I have the amd x2 3800+ processor - Will this allow me to make full use of the memory or will I need to upgrade that too?? I need some input here - there is so much to choose from it makes my head hurt.
