  1. Hello, I currently am building a new box with a P5W DH and I was wondering if want MHz past 800MHz would be compatible with this mother board.

    ^Here is some Mushkin 1066MHz RAM

    I was wondering out of the two which would be the best for gaming. And if the 1066MHz RAM wouldnt work with my motherboard if this 800MHz would be the best.

    While you might be able to do this (sorry for the vague answer), I see no reason to. Your RAM is only going to run as fast as your mobo allows; thus you would unnecessarily spending more for no greater performance. Btw, suggest you go with Corsair, quality is important.

    And if you bought yourself this stuff you would be spending $200 less.
