    Er..Do tell! Which is better?!

    lol..i've heard fast write actually sucks, and that turning it on makes ur system more unstable with absolutely NO performance boost, but if there is another opinion out there I'd love to hear it!

    Speak up:bounce2:

    Fast write is actaully an advantage, if your mobo and video card supports it, it provides 1-5% performance boost. The downside of Fast write, is that it can cause instability issues, so its prefered off. :cheers:

    No it's a video card settin' in the mobo BIOS but it can usually cause stability probs.

    I did say "usually", not "always", but some ppl (me included) can be prob free with it enabled but others have to disable it because it causes stability probs. :blah:

    No and quite frankly there's less difference between it bein' on or off than the difference between 4x AGP and 8x AGP which isn't much either.
