Hey there, RAM is my next big upgrade. I want something that will hit 165 without flinching and hopefully 190's without too much hassle.
My current mobo only supports up to 165 FSB so as it is, I only need the 165. But my next upgrade (cept maybe a cooling set up, depending on how quickly I get the money together) would be a mobo that makes it
I think the corsair's going to be better, but it's also alot more. I would like 512 RAM, and I think it's better just getting the one stick, but if I can get two that work well for less than about 195, then by all means...
Stupidity should be painful.

The KT400 motherboards will be hitting in about 2 months. Not a bit issue really, but these things should handle 200MHz bus speeds without a hitch. They also are supposed to have a slightly more advanced memory controller. Plus they should have a slew of nice features like AGP 8x, USB 2.0, Firewire, and some are supposed to include an Serial ATA-133 connection and hardware 6 channel sound with full Dolby 5.1 suround.
Some reports from this weeks convensions are saying a HighPoint chip is being used on most. It supports 2 Serial and 1 Standard hard drive header and can run RAID. From test that aree hitting these things are hitting the 150MB transfere rates where ATA133 usually only hits rates of about 40MB. 2 Serial drives in RAID would be mighty. Even SCSSI drives will have trouble keeping up with these things.
The only problem is the drives themselves will likely not be avaluable until sometime next year.
