I'm just getting into Intel after being with AMD for a while,i'm left with a stick of DDR333 (PC2700) and i'm wondering if the Epox 4G4A will support DDR333.I have limited choices of ONLY Epox,Gigabyte mobo's.

And i'm going to OC the heck out of it:D which is why the Epox 4G4A tempts me.

The 4G4A will run PC2700 fine, even though it's not "officially supported". In fact it'll even run PC3200 or greater at rated speeds, if you OC the fsb. There is a 3:4 BIOS setting that will enable you to run memory at 200MHz/DDR400/PC3200 if your fsb is at 150 (600qdr). If you don't OC, then the 3:4 ratio will put your mem at about 177MHz/DDR354 (if the fsb is at 133), which your PC2700 can likely handle, and I believe there is also a 4:5 setting on that mobo. :)
