I think it will be fine but I figured it doesn't hurt to ask. The processor FSB is 1333MHz and the Mother Board says it supports FSB 533/800/1066MHz will this work if I use this Processor??
Well I'm trying to build a super cheap system for a friend who has an old Dell 1100 and wants a faster box. Im trying to keep the budget under $300 US I need a CPU, Mother Board and ram here is what im looking at so far
Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 Conroe 2.33GHz $169.99
BIOSTAR P4M890-M7 TE LGA 775$44.99
CORSAIR ValueSelect 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) $38.99
Bring the total to $253.97 So I could realistically another $50 if needed, buy my bud is broke so Im trying to save him as much as I can
Now incase anyone notices I went with the 533 ram instead of the 667 because I read a review and the guy had made an excellent point. He said it would not POST with the 667 so when he went to the Biostar site is says it's rated for 533 but on newegg it says it can take the 667. What do you guys think of that?? Also as usual any suggestions would be helpful Thanks guys
