  1. I am going to be getting this motherboard:

    ABIT "KV8" K8T800

    Will my Kingston HyperX 2700+ memory work on it? It says in the description: RAM: 2x DIMM DDR400 or 3x DIMM DDR333 up to 2GB

    Do I have to get new memory? I'm getting a 64 bit proc with the motherboard.

    Yes, your Kingston HyperX will definitely work. However your memory might be the bottleneck for higher peformance since a 64 bit processor has an effective FSB of 400MHz.

    Awesome. Thank you! I plan on upgrading my memory but on a budget I have to do one thing at a time. Want to talk bottleneck? I'll be using my GeForce 4 ti4200
