Anyone know what speed memory they use?

It seems the core is 400. Is the memory 400?
Is it the same memory used on the ultra?

I've got to return my 9800 and get one.
I cannot get my rig stable with the Pro.
If u r wondering why read my post in the "other cards" forum.

this isn't goin to help at all, but since the ultra uses 2.2ns memory, i think the regular uses 2.5-3ns bga memory.

If I were in your place I'd just sell the mainboard and pay the difference for a newer canterwood/springdale board. But to each their own...

FX5900 ultra and non-ultra have same memory speeds.

If you are going with the non-ultra, I'd go with the MSI FX5900 - excellent design, and the quietest of the bunch (as long as that 3/4" cm fan on the back doesnt interfere with your mobo's heatsink)
