Question about compatability from a newbie

Hey all,

 

currently building up my first computer (that IVE made). Here are the specs:

 

Q6600 quad

Gigabyte P35-DS3R (rev. 1.0)

Corsair TWIN2X2048-8500C5DF (with airflow fan shroud)

8800 GTX gfx card

 

anyway, I havent purchased the RAM yet, and I was wondering if anyone can tell me if it will be compatible with my other hardware? I spoke to a guy in the shop Im purchasing it from and he said any mobo with a P35 chipset will run fine...but I wanted to ask someone whos a bit more clued in and not just wanting to sell things..

 

Thanks in advance! :)

gday,

 

thanks for the speedy reply! Where abouts do I get the latest BIOS from for my mobo? I have the driver CD that came with it...will I need to get a newer version than whats on there? Also, and I know this question is probably a bit too open-ended to answer, but when I switch it on for the first time, what "scary stuff" do I need to do? I was aware Id need to do SOMETHING with the ram in the BIOS (thought it was change the speed of it or something? didnt know i had to change the timing (thats what 5-5-5-15 is yea?)).

 

cheers
