I bought a slew of computer parts from newegg.com. I quickly checked compatibility and purchased all of the parts. One of the items I purchased was an ABIT AW8D, and one of the other items I purchased was a Core 2 Duo 2.13 GHz. The sockets matched and they looked like a good match. What I didn't realize was that the AW8D wasn't made for the Core 2 Duo
. So I RMA'd through Newegg, and now I am ordering an ABIT AW9D. This one will take the Core 2 and seems to be about the same. The problem I ran into was in wondering if the DDR2 667 I bought for the AW8D would work in the newer AW9D that says it will take DDR2 800. I thank you for all of your help, and wish you a Happy New Year.
