what mobo do you recomend for me ( im using AGP tho)

well, I recommend my model, a DFI Lanparty NF3 Ultra-D.. it's great for overclocking and stability and games and it's AGP .. but if you're going to get this one, I recommend that you stick not more than 2 ram modules as if you stick more the Ram will come single channel and not dual... an NF3 flaw i guess

Thats not exactly true.
I've heard it all depends on the situation.
Meaning that it can go either way depending on the ram/mobo/etc

well it supports PC3200, meaning it will read it as a 400Mhz Frequency, but buying ram better than PC3200 ex.. Pc3500 or higher will be usefull when you start overclocking the CPU as the RAM will then work not on an overclock... P.S. this is a good ram Corsair 2GB DDR XMS3500LL Pro TwinX (2x1GB) CAS2 (MY-093-CS) check here
