    1st - how good is this motherboard - I got it for $20 never been used from a guy who never used it
    2nd - will corsair ddr xms2 -6400 ram work in it?
    3rd - how is this driver set for windows 10? Any known issues?
    4th - this pc will be used for surfing the web watching youtube facebook type stuff - will it work fine for that with a amd rx 550 2gb model?
    5th - any type of overclocking with this motherboard?
    Thats all for now. If i remember any more i will ask then lol.

    Google the EVGA 780 board or visit there forums, a lot of people had issue's with that board. I forget exactly, think it was the "FF" Fully Fawked error, this was the same board was the P45'S. Glad i went with Gigabyte on this platform, there DQ6X48 board where killers you cant even find one now.

    If i remember correctly the 6400 was 800mhz....the board will will take 1066 but not sure about 1333, the q6600 should be oc`able if you can find a good enough cooler, the 780 sli was a great board back in the day and so was the Q6600....i had the same setup.....but that was back in the day, might make a nice little retro system but dont expect it to work forever...treat every day like its last....give it the love and attention it deserved many years ago and dont shout at it when it struggles with Crysis.
