Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe you can use DDR2 RAM in DDR(1) motherboards...

(or the other way round either, for that matter)

DDR2 is 240 if I'm not mistaken and DDR(1) is 180 so no.

Hey, I was wondering about the case...the spaces for CD drives...it's like it already has them :? Are those just fake plastic spacers?

They look like just covers that look like cd drives, just pop them out and insert the real drives.

And why did you change the case? The other looked better and came with 3 120mm fans. The case you picked doesn't even have space for 3 120mm fans.

I figured it was the price, and i would go with a different one personally, but if you like it, that's all that matters. :)

after reading some of the reviews, you might want to get a different 80mm fan, many people were complaining about the noise level of it. It's got good reviews so I'd go for it if you like it.

Though if you want to have a really cool awesome case, get a full tower, and put in water cooling :lol:

lol, I like the neon part of the case. Well, I should get a new fan, but one thing I don't get. Say I mount the video card...where would the ports protude from, and why are there two ports?

The ports come out the back.. just like in nearly evvery computer case.

You see in the back where there are little things that look like the pop out? Well you pop those out and just slide the card in there.

and there are 2 ports so you can have dual monitors.

What I say is, warrenties shouldnt be voided until the first gens has voided. Cause I dont want him throwing 1grand + down the drain.
