In an intel unit the FSB dictates the max RAM speed it can handle.
My AMD-64x2 4200+ (2.2GHz) says it has a bus speed of 200MHz x5 to give an HT Link of 1000MHz.
Currently running dual channel DDR2-800 1+1GB and DDR2-667 1+1GB (yeah i know it's weird but upgrading small bits at a time - recently stuck in the 2 gig of DDR2-800 and kept the old ram as well).
So the question is - what is the max ram this thing will handle ie Utilise? Googling has come to a roadblock. Thanks. Just curious ... and i'm no cat!
(To cut long story short i had no hand in choosing this desktop as it was a surprise gift ... i'd have gone for Intels on an educated mobo.)
