yes you can run the fsb at 220, it will just be running your ram at 440mhz instead of stock 400, you can keep raising the fsb, and you might need to "loosin" the ram timings to go further, and it will keep speeding up you ram

ya so far it works great for me OCing... i had no clue about OCing a month ago... or when i bought all my pc parts 3 yrs ago...and it just turns out i got lucky and have OCed pretty well for a first timer, so i would say this is a pretty good board for OCing... i like it

that ram will be OK for OCing because its ddr500... so you have 100mhz of head room before your actually using all the banwidth... tighter timings will help more, but for ddr500,tight timings are EXPENSIVE!!!... OCZ and G.Skill have good ddr500 ram for around $190-220

lol, oh.... well ive heard of patriot, but i personally dont know much about them... it seems to be pretty good, but if you want to be totally sure of quality, i would suggest going with a more well known name...

oh... well if your sis isnt OCing then why not just give her some value pc3200... i know that tigerdirect sells some Ultra pc3200 1gb for like $90... or the ram you have linked above is more than sufficent...
