    Because that how the market works. You want the better/best products you pay money for them. I thought this was a general knowledge issue. Isn't it?

    Ummm.......

    I hope you're considering remedial English and/or typing. A "collage" is a collection of articles/items/images put together to make something new. A "college" is a place you go to learn that.
    Moving on, supersmashbrada is the big quad core fan. Has he checked in yet? Of course he has, silly me.

    Try not to take me too seriously.

    Not necessarily. $300 isn't expensive for a quad core processor like the Q6600. But it's still a good quality CPU innit? It's the actual hardware specs that count, and someone who has the technical knowledge to sift out the marketing hype from the real deal is the one who gets the better buy at the end of the day. Simple as that. :)

    Edit: Corrected the ambiguous part that confused captaincranky. ;)

    Oh Gosh, Do They Still Kill the Messenger?

    No rage, $300.00 is a dynamite price. But, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115017 It's $375.00 today. Supply, demand, greed, makes an ugly ****tail. < I guess I was supposed to say "mixed drink", that way I assume it wouldn't have been censored.

    supersmashbrada does the Asus P5n32-E support pc2-8500 ram?

    boyd117, if u talking about P5n32-E SLI (680i), the answer - yes it does. Got to Corsair web site http://www.corsair.com/testreports/report_list.aspx and you can see they test TWIN2X2048-8500C5 memory on it. When i found it i did buy P5n32-E SLI and TWIN2X2048-8500C5 memory and it works great. By default it uses 800MHz but through overclocking menu u can rise it to 1066MHz

    So, therefore it DOESN'T support PC8500 because you need to overclock to run it at that speed. My motherboard, a P5B Deluxe, has an option for DDR2-1066 when the CPU is not overclocked. Therefore, mine does support it, since I don't need to overclock to run at that speed.

    The board doesnt support anything above 6400 dd2 800, anything higher could void multiple warranties do to having to raise and change voltages.

    I'm sorry to say that, but are you saying that because my motherboard has an option called "SpeedBoost", setting that isn't considered overclocking?

    Overclocking is just running something out of spec. DDR2 spec goes up to 800mhz, so anything above that is overclocking, even if they sell it to you saying it'll do 1066mhz.

    1066 is out of spec, if you overclock intentionally? Or if you guy it at that speed its still considered?

    The overclock options are the official options provided by ASUS so to rise memory frequency is in the motherboard spec and 1066MHz its native speed of PC2-8500 so it's also in the spec range, i am not sure what kind of warranties could be voided.

    You guys really need to define, what do u mean under support: will this memory work on particular motherboard on full speed or is this memory mentioned as recommended memory by motherboard manufacturer.
