Is your memory DDR500 or DDR400? What is your memory configuration, you just say 2GB of Ballistix. If you have 4x512MB this might cause and issue, your memory controller will be working double time.
The FTT multi is your HyperTransport of your processor and yours is 1000MHz. What you ideally want to do is get this up to 1000MHz without going over. So if you want to run with a 260 HTT you better switch it to 3x (or 600MHz however you bios is set up).
If you have DDR500 which I do not know to exist in Crucial Ballistix (As Santa Claus said in the M&M commericial, "They do really exist". Pardon my incompetence), then yea set it to 260 HTT with a 1:1 ratio. Since it might be DDR400 you might just want to throw in a moderate divider to see how far you can push your processor. Once you have found this out then start bumping you memory up to find your max configuration in relation to your cpu and memory.
