    Oh yeah, you are right! That was the Asus P4T533-c MOBO that uses RDRAM. Sorry for my ignorance. I am new at this knda stuff.

    Basically RDRAM has been dropped from future Intel chipsets and is dead in the water with a hole in the hull (for every day use the price is far to much anyway, here in Aussieland anyway).

    Wiggo,

    What is a buddy list? I keep seeing it over here on several forums, but have no idea what it is. Could you explain?

    Thnks for all your input guys, I'm planning to but the stuff in only around 2-3 months time, this aint the right time to buy a new rig, I live in Qatar and till this bloody war gets over Im postponing me purchase...


    So maybe in around 2 months time the granite bays price may drop a little...

    Do you guys know the major advantage of the Granite bay, is it only that it supports Dual DDR.... does Dual DDR make a huge difference in speed.... can you use ordinary DDR or do you have to use diff ram also... and what would be the difference in the ram prices like... thanks a lot guys...

    To use dual channel ddr, you need two identical sticks of goold 'ol fashion, yup you guessed it, regular DDR ram :)

    You can use normal DDR eh?... well thats sexy... thats what I wanted to hear.. I was anyway planning to have two sticks of 512MB DDR 333 ... so I guess I dont have to invest extra on ram just on the mobo.. hmm.. me now leaning heavily to the E720 side.... heh does dual granite bay support 333 and above?... what about the FSB... what is the max it can be overclocked... thanks a lot guys.. me getting some really good advice and info from these boards... good luck and god bless.

    Keep in mind what i said, those two sticks of ram must be IDENTICAL (eg., same batch #, same company, etc). You can find that info by looking at your ram chips and comparing the two sticks.

    As far as speed wise, the 7205 only supports PC2100 DDR (266) ... You can get to 333 if you were able to oc to 166mhz fsb, but i've not seen too many people able to pull off an oc over 160mhz fsb on a granite bay board unfortunately :/
