I own an XFX 680ilt motherboard. I am considering an increase in ram (4gigs) but I need some guidance.
The mobo is set for 800 mhz memory (which is what I have now), but even the factory tech at XFX stated the mobo BIOS could be overclocked to accept the higher speed and utilize it. I looked it up in the BIOS and yes, it can... but,
Is this a safe and stable option? I'm a gamer and looking for increased system speed. I'll buy 800 or 1066 memory depending on what I learn here. Point is: I don't want to burn out components, 'cause I can't afford to buy new ones every year... any advice will be taken seriously.
Also, is it true that Windows XP cannot use more than 2 gigs of ram, so that more than that would be a waste of money?!?!
