Default Re: Asus Striker Extreme or EVGA 122-CK-NF68-AR

Didn't know that, however I still wouldn't get the EVGA -- I stick to proper motherboard manufacturers, and to be honest nvidia reference designs don't inspire much confidence I still remember the horror that was the MSI k7N420 Pro (though I blame MSI at least as much as nvidia there).

What PSU was that?

If I am not going to overclock (I won't be) is it worthwhile going with the 1066mhz memory (I'm hoping the extra bandwidth over and above that required by the cpu can be put to good use by the graphics subsystem etc and linkboost)
