  1. I just got an Asus P5N-E SLI mobo from my freind for free, along with an Intel core 2 duo E8400 processor. I dont know a whole lot about this setup, although i have read about the PCI-E limitations with this board, that wont be a problem because i will only be running one video card. Mainly, my question was about ram. i havent been in the know for a year or so, and i am unsure as to buy ddr3 or ddr2 ram for this board and processor. will it be supported? is it worth it?
    if you have any affordable ram setups that you would recommend feel free to tell me the name of the brand and unit. thanks,
    -E
