hi. i am making my own pcb board and i dont know what oscilator to use for this chip (uno32 - PIC32MX320F128)

I need a through hall (not SMD). in the datasheet it says FQ705B-8.000 but i cant find something on google about this. how many Mhz need to find? (i am ordering from mouser electronics)

The crystal is 8MHz. I don't know the capacitance or cut off the top of my head.

The FQ7050B that is used on the chipKIT boards is made by Fox Electronics.

For a through-hole crystal, I would use something in an HC49us package. The ECS-80-18-4 by ECS International is one we have used. This style is available from a number of manufacturers (citizen, epson, etc.) I'd search on Digikey for crystals in HC49US package.
