This is my first Post. I intend building my first photo/video home workstation on the AMD AM2 platform, and to this end recently acquired an Abit KN9 SLI motherboard. To my chagrin I find it only supports DDR2 800 (expencive! high-end gamers stuff), so I can't go lower. I intended using the AM2 64 X2 4800 with this.
My question! Is this motherboard and DDR2 800 overkill? I will be using heavy applications such as Pinacle Studio, Adobe Premier and Photoshop, Corel Paint and a couple of othe Art suits.
Any advice would be greratly appreciated. Oh! and a reccommended video card for this setup would be appreciated too.
Many Thanks in anticipation.
