no, because your monitor is 60 Hz it's limited to 60 FPS, but the highest i've seen is a 110 Hz CRT - the "1337" FPS people get is largely pointless

DDR2 is superior RAM, it's twice as capable as DDR, so yes. I forget exactly what, but I *think* DDR is 4-bit and DDR2 is 8-bit. Very likely I'm wrong, but I DO KNOW that DDR2 makes a big improvement over DDR, especially if you have an AM2 proc.

I am a big AMD fanboy, always have been, and knowing the status of the market, I can pass onto you the best advice even I have to accept.

As long as it's not some Dell/HP/Compaq, etc prebuilt, you can definitely OC with that mobo's bios.

I'm not the person to ask, I'm an overclocking n00b. Find an ocing FAQ/guide, they're everywhere here.
