  1. Hello everyone. i really love this forum it is a good place to come and seek answers.
    i am considering a first time build and would everyones input as to the components i picked out as to whether or not they will play together nicely.
    MSI K7N2 Delta2 Platinum
    Mushkin PC3200 512MB dual channel kit
    AMD Athlon XP3200+(barton core)


    i am uncertain about memory speed as some manufacturers do not show DDR400 as a recomendation for this board. Will PC3200/DDR400 fly ok on this board? i want the memory and cpu to clock the same at 400.


    All opinions appreciated. :suspiciou

    I think the memory should work at ddr 400. It says it does on msi's site, so it should.

    The AthlonXP 3200+ is almost impossible to find. In fact, AMD has stopped producing quite a lot of Barton CPUs & are promoting the Semprons for the Socket-A platform.

    IMO it would be wiser (& not that much more expensive) to get an Athlon64 2800+ / 3000+ & a nForce 3 250 board.
