Is this your mobo?
If so....note where it says 512 per slot with an "*" and then it says 4096 max.
Since there are only 4 slots perhaps a look in the mobo manual.
If your limited to 512x4.....that might give you pause.
Cpu.....your going to come up a little short vs a c2d e6600.
Will it work?
I suppose the only way to know is to try it.
I think this may be a topic that's a bit offhand from the rest that are posted here, but I have been a viewer of CNET discussions for quite some time and would like to see if the community could assist me. As the title states, I have been thinking hard about upgrades to my computer so that it can last for a few more years (I play a lot of video games and am anticipating the release of COD:Black Ops). I will first give a rundown of original specs, then modifications that have already taken place, and finally I will give some ideas I have had in regards to my computers. I would like to point out that I am not really in the mood to fiddle with new operating systems (I have more than enough computers here with vista 64). I enjoy and am accustom to the limitations of XP.

I am looking to upgrade RAM (4GB XP max)for sure, but I am also looking at a Graphics Card, HDD, 1 of my Optical Drives, and maybe the PSU. Basically, I saw the minimum requirements for COD: Black Ops and I almost exploded. It actually caught me off guard because I checked my specs on http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=703&game=Call%20of%20Duty%207 and it said my CPU wasn't enough even though it has the same clock as that trip-core on minimum reqs.
Anyway, thanks ahead and I can understand something of this sort may take some time. I would hope that I can get a rough idea before black friday so that I can make a list and check it twice. As for price, I can figure that out on my own. If any other info is necessary, or if you just want to make fun of my system I will reply and by amused.
