They mean Nvidia Chipsets (Nforce XXX) on the motherboards.

</div>They don't overclock nearly as well as the Intel chipsets but looking at it now, it doesn't matter. If you're getting the X6800 then you won't really need to raise that FSB all that much.

No, just that the Nvidia chipsets for intel at the moment are crap. The 680i chipset should change all of that though - by a huge margin.<br />

Get this RAM, there is nothing else better available (D9GHM)

</div>You realise that is only PC2 5300? Not that great at all.

So how do you know if its Nvidia chipset of intel chipset? I would have figured nvidia cards and chipset would have been more compatible

It says on the specs under chipset, when you buy the motherboard.

</div>They use D9GHM chips, the same D9GHM chips that are doing 1000mhz+ at 4-4-4

Intel chipsets are 965 and 975.<br />
<br />
Nvidia are NF4SLI and NF590SLI.<br />

</div>Ah, I haven't read too much about DDR2 chips. Do you not think chips rated at that speed would be better though? More expensive I know... but he seems to have this 50% off deal whatever it is.<br />
<br />
After some reading I have noticed that SLI can be enabled on 965/975, but you will not get the full x16 bandwidth and you will have to use modded drivers (from what I've just read).

The "deal" is while I am doing my masters using computers, the U of C owns 50% of the machine. Once completed, I must let them use computer divided programs (ie folding at home type things) for an additional year. At this time I can purchase their share of the computer at current market value, which in 3 years, lol. They do it to get a lot of high end computers to help in their work, and only have half the bill

</div>Nope, no need to pay more for the same.<br />
<br />
As mentioned, if you're 100% buying the x6800/QX6700, then it's okay to go with an Nvidia based motherboard

</div>Actually, No. As long as the ICs used are Micron D9GHM, they should be capable of 1000+ MHz at slightly relaxed timings. Crucial, G.SKILL, Patriot, Team Group and others are all using these ICs in their highest end memory, but the real bargains are getting the stuff rated lower like this, and overclocking it... It's the <i>SAME</i> memory, just with different SPD.

For the CPU. I believe its this model:<br />

True.<br />
<br />
What if he decides to overclock the thing anyway? Then he'll be stuck. I say waiting for the 680i could be the better option?

</div>I disagree. Time & again nVidia chipsets have proven inferior to Intel chipsets when used with the Intel platform. That's just the current state of things right now. Once nVidia gets the 6xx series chipsets going, that may change, but right now, they're not available, and are unproven at this time. The only <i>real</i> proven performers for C2D and C2 Extreme right now are the Intel 975X & 965 chipsets. DFI should have their mobo based on the ATI RD600 chipset that <i>should</i> dominate the field, but again, it's not released to the public yet and as such, I consider unproven.

The 680i is Nvidia's new chipset that is suppose to fix the OCing problems they currently have (Released Nov 8th)<br />
<br />
By modded drivers he means hacked ones that let you use SLI on Intel chipsets

The 965 and 975 need modded drivers for then to work in SLI.<br />
<br />
The 680i is the new nvidia chipset due out very soon.<br />
<br />
That water block is the same for 939 and 775 from what I've seen, the danger den RBX. But the see-through plastic mounting mechanisms are different which look difficult to change (if not impossible). Finding the new mounting plastic thingy would be difficult too.
