dude this is 3 months old and your question doesn't make too much sense. video memory and system memory are different the GPU uses the video memory at much higher speeds than the cpu can use regular memory. if you pay attention to your video card it's not ddr3 memory it's gddr the g is for graphics.

So, does DDR2 800 and DDR2 1066 have the same compatability with GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB?

DDR2 RAM has nothing to do with your Graphics Card.

Welcome to Neowin. :yes:

Ok, thanks. I just learning about all this stuff. Trying to attempt building my computer for the first time.

It was on google, the third one from the top. I was just trying to get help, no need to be a prick.

well, to answer your question - your RAM is independent of the video card. 1066MHz ram still wont provide much increase in performance over 800MHz ram. the benefit is when you overclock your cpu... 1066MHz memory provides more breathing room.

Does overclocking void the warranty, and is that worth it?

you can post a new topic...

I didn't think about it. I just saw that this was relating to what I was curious about. Building a PC has a lot more involved then I thought.

Next time, look at the date, please.

Overclocking does not void warranty. A safe overclock will not harm your computer. It's worth it, Most of us on these forums Overclock.

i think overclocking voids most warranties, but would be hard to prove if there was a problem (unless you torch a component)

If I posted the specs I'm looking at buying, would you guys be able to tell me if it all works/makes sense together?

Yes, but create a new thread. You will get more help.

Yes, please create a new thread... this topic doesn't really have anything to do with the original topic.
