    There's nothing wrong with that PSU. I have ran a Q6600 @3.2GHz & HD4850 OC 685/1100, on the Antec EA500.

    As I type this, I'm using the same PSU. Runs completely fine in all of my stress tests. Prime95 24hrs, IBT 20passes, etc..


    Core2Duo E8500 E0 @4.25GHz (500x8.5)

    Something to also consider is the Q8200 has the lowest power consumption of the intel quads at stock and overclocked.
    Im not a "green person" its just a question of overclocking cpus increases their power consumption/heat a lot.
    A quad core cpu of the same family should be better than a dual core at any given speed its just the duals get to higher o/c speeds + most games only have dual core optimisation at best.
    Memory speed isnt the "holy grail" its more cpu speed and memory bandwidth,
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler

    Pretty much all P45 boards out there will run DDR2 1066's fine as long as memory is compatible with the board. Sticking with memory that's on the mobo manufacturer's QVL is a good way to avoid the mobo-memory compatibility issues.

    When selecting a mobo, I recommend sticking with reputable manufacturers such as Gigabyte, Asus and DFI. Avoid MSI unless you want inferior product that is a potential fire hazard. Yes, MSI boards are known to catch on fire. Just google "MSI board fire."

    thanks all! been looking around and q8200 is ok, but there are other that are much better.
    "

    sorry i meant to specify, this board does accept 1066 but when over clocked. If i plug a module thats 1066 wil it reconize it? the timings for the 800 are rather atractive though!

    ps: cheers again!

    cpu
    freq
    266 x 4.0 (system memory multiplier) = 1064MHz memory speed
    333 x 3.2 (system memory multiplier) = 1066MHz memory speed

    Not all motherboards will properly auto-detect 1066 speeds, but you will be able to manually set the memory multiplier if necessary without overclocking. If your memory is programmed with an EPP profile for 533, the motherboard should detect the 1066 speed. In some cases, you might need to manually set the correct Dram voltage.

    You might have better overall performance running at 900MHz memory speeds with tighter memory timings.
    My EP45-UD3P properly detected my 1066 memory speed and voltage.
