    You will only hit 150MHz FSB if all things come togeter properly... and the odds of it doing so are slim with your current motherboard. The board, the memory and all peripherals have to work together to attain these levels of performance. To be honest, the board you have sucks, so it is unlikely that you'll hit your desired speed.

    i'm poor too.. but i got my epox 8rda+ from myself,heres what i did


    - i ask my friends if they had any junk ( like videogames,, books ,,,, clothing ..etc) and then had a garage sale..

    i managed 80 bucks in 4 days.

    - then,,i joined this little 5-7 year old basketball and help become a referee and a coach. (i made 7 dollars a game for refreeing,, and 50 bucks for the whole coach thing)

    I made a total of 245 dollars in just 2 in a half months' ..


    Try to find some mini job,,like mine,, (refreeing basketball. and u will have the money to buy a new mobo in no time

    ( o just to let u know,,i've been refreeing for this club for 3 years now,and i have made 2000 dollars :):thumb:

    Yes you do, unless you have no onboard audio, no onboard video, no onboard ide controller, etc, etc... as those all use the PCI bus :)

    i thought they were just connected to the south bridge, and thats it. But i guess thats sennsible, because the PCI bus operates at 133 MBs bandwidth and thats the highest you can get standard ATA.

    The southbridge contains the PCI bus.
