.....I guess I could have just done that too, didn't think of that.
I have only 2gigs of RAM and it's working fine for me. You don't even need 4gigs unless your running Vista along with RAM intensive programs(?). 2gigs are plenty for whatever I do. 4gigs is overkill unless you plan to run Vista and other programs that eat a lot of RAM at the same time.

You could ask people in the Intel Build Forum of Overclock.net what the best parts would be for your budget.

From the looks of it, you getting 4gigs of RAM and a Q6600 must mean you run some intensive programs.

What are you going to be using your new computer for?

--Edit--
Can you return the RAM for a refund since you have the DS3L now?

I would get WD 6400AAKS (I think thats the model). It's one of the best mid-range harddrive currently on the market. Newegg should have it for $100, and for 640GB, thats not half bad.

Not sure if I should still be included on the list as I recently replaced my DS3L with a DFI LP LT P35 board. Do I stay, or do I go?

I just bought this board a few days ago and just got it in today. I hooked up all my components being careful about it all. When I went to turn the system on for the first time, it made a continuous beep. I reset my graphics card and turned the system back on. This time it did not make any beeps and there was no display.

Every component was on and running fine. I tried unplugging everything and hooking things up one at a time. Still I have no display and the board hasn't made any beeps. Any ideas?

I did read that that had very good benchmarks but it's only 16mg cache do you think that would make a difference

I'll be running XP SP3.
Intensive programs... well, honestly I'm not sure what I'll do with this one yet. I've been using the same laptop for the past decade (literally, I bought it in 1998), HDD finally went out on me so I figured I no longer had an excuse to not buy a new computer.
I'll probably just use it for games.
Can't refund the RAM, website I bought it from has as replacement-only policy.

Can anyone tell me how this board handles 2.2V 2gb ram?

Yes it does. idk what you mean by How. umm you set the ram voltage in the bios.
Now for my own question which i have probably touched on in this post previously. Im really wanting to know how many people here with ds3l boards run into the issue i run into every once in a while. every once in a while my pc fails to boot.
It does the automatic restart thing at bios level where it restarts 2 times then all my settings are gone, i simple re-enable everything then im fine until next time it happens.

So to you ds3l owners, does your pc start 100% of the time and you guys never experience this ?? Ive tried a bunch of things and was hoping it would never happen again, but alas i woke up today pushed the shiny silver power button and here i am again. Maybe this is normal and i should stop beating myself up trying to figure it out. Hook me up with your feedback pm or in the trhead Thanks Guys
