Re: Mushkin XP2 PC2-8500 - Any good?
Its good ram, but id get the Crucial ballistix pc2-8000. less than 200 after rebate now. Also, the p5b deluxe is a good board, but it does have some quirks. e.g. double restarts, setting nb vcore > 1.45 causes PCIe link width to be stuck to 1x. Theres better 965 boards out now, specifically the asus commando, abit quadgt, and the dfi infinity 965-s. the 965-s is just starting to come around now, id expect it to be instock most places within two weeks. Wait till later in april for the price cuts and grab the DFI 965 board.
