Can someone explain the ASUS Striker Extreme memory situation if you use all 4 DIMM sockets but do not overclock?
We cannot get EVGA products in Australia
, these are my choices for motherboards:
(out of those choices ASUS is far and away my first choice, the only other brands I'd even consider being Gigabyte & Abit).
I plan on using the Intel QX6700 quad core cpu (Yes, I know not much difference between two and 4 cores atm, but I expect that will change with upcoming games due to multiple cpu's in the consoles).
I plan on using 4 gig of this memory (nvidia SLI certified) http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/21077
There are no 2 gig DIMMS available @1066mhz
For graphics I intend to use 2x http://www.auspcmarket.com.au/show_p...info.php?input
I'm not sure whether to go this way (nforce 680i seems to be quite troublesome) or build a system around a gigabyte nForce590 + AMD6000+ (not as powerful overall, but seems like it would be more stable).
