Prototype fails to load.. Assasins creed and darksector worksfine.. .. i think theres some problem with nforce 189.89 driver.. some details missing in crysis Warhead when shader and postprocessing set to veryhigh.. or maybe its becoz my win 7.. and it does not gives me good frame in shellshock2 and assassins creed as well..
I find that for ram you are better off buying the speed you will need rather than trying to OC your ram and CPU at the same time, I mean these ram companies are getting real tight with their binning of the chips.
As for the P5N-D DDR2-900 or 1066 will suffice,
Set FSB-Mem. clock mode to linked and FSB-Mem. ratio to sync mode
this will assure that your ram rams at a true 1:1 ratio or half the FSB
