    I didn't know that RDRAM had ECC but it will take a hit in performance though. ;)

    Yes it does and costs more too plus if the motherboard BIOS doesn't support ECC then it's just a waste of money. :smokin:

    No there is not more than a %5 difference between 1066 and 800. If you really want an i850e board i would wait until there is more than three out on the market, at the moment, the intel is the best one stock and the asus one is the best overclocking board, which doesnt say much. Also in some RDRam boards, all slots must be full, that is, you cant have any empty RIMM slots, so you need to either fill them all, or get continuity cards, anyhow, if you are getting RDRam, i suggest buying 2x64 & 2x128MB modules, so you end up with 384MB, that is about all the memory you need running RDRam. Also PC800 performs about equal w/ DDR333, if you do choose PC800, atleast you have a wider range of boards to choose from
