1st Build, and learning - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Virtually all DDR2 memory will work in a board that supports some speed of DDR2 memory. There are some rare exceptions with boards that don't support the needed voltage, or timings...this typically happens with very high end ram, and a cheapo board.

So the ram's Front Side Bus Speed doesn't have to match the Processor's front side bus? I just has to match the motherboards?

This computer will be my main computer and will mostly be used for listening to music and watching videos. I will be doing some gaming.
