Re:

Hi guys, thanks again for the replies, although I have to admit you've managed to confuse me on the ram side a little... does CAS == CL in old money? does DDR2 work with AMD 64 CPUs? Am I better getting fewer larger capacity sticks of RAM or more smaller capacity sticks (i.e. 2x512mb or 1x1gb and so...
