The max this APU can handle is 1333mhz ram, but think upgradability. It works with higher speed ram.
I have been keeping track of pricing of computer components on nine different sites and found they all maintained the same, or nearly the same pricing (MSRP). Then, I came across Super Biiz one day an... (more)
