    My friend dropped me a mail today telling me that he bought this.

    Am i wrong or shouldn't nforce2 be used with two memory modules to get 100% performance? If so, how mutch will he loose with this module only?

    He never told me about this, if he had mentioned it i would have suggested that he choose a Western Digital SE instead of that Maxtor and a Volcano7+ as cpu cooler.
    (Don't have a clue what this Spire cooler can do though, never heard of it.)

    Last, is this 9500 pro dx9.0 suported?

    1 st SIR300W (Sirtec HPC-300 300W ATX (AMD&P4 OK) Quiet!)

    1 st EP8RDAPL (EPoX EP-8RDA+ nForce2 6PCI 1AGP8x 3DDR-DIMM UDMA133 USB2.0 LAN 6 CHANNEL AUDIO

    1 st XP2200 (AMD Athlon XP2200+ Thoroughbred 1800MHz/1.8GHz 256Kb 266MHz 0.13
    bulk SocketA)

    1 st SPFROCK2 (Spire FalconRock II 25dBA SocketA (max XP2800+

    1 st 512DDR333 (Standard 512Mb DDR PC2700/DDR333 184pin 333MHz cas2.5 (AMD OK)

    1 st MAXDMO980SE (Maxtor DiamondMax Plus9 6Y080P0 80Gb 7200rpm Special Edition (8Mb cache!) UDMA133 Fluid IDE)

    1 st HTEXRAD95P-128 Hightech Excalibur ATI Radeon 9500Pro 128Mb DDR DVI TV-out

    /Thx

    Ok that HSF didn't fair to well here, http://www.dansdata.com/coolercomp_p5.htm#sfr2 :(

    Yes a WD JB series drive would've been much better (the words Maxtor + overclockin' has rarely ended well). ;)

    The R9500P shouldn't have a prob dependin' on that PSU. :)

    But really the memory will be the biggest prob as that mobo will quickly be held back by it plus PC3200 is the minimum that I'd use with it and performance could be as much as 15-20% down usin' only one memory controller. :devil win

    Try runnin' SETI in the background while runnin' benchmarks as this is how I test for stability in a PC over a 5 day period non stop (the object here is not the scores but to see if the system can handle the abuse). Seti also pretty much gets 99% outa a CPU so it's good for gettin' full load temps. ;)

    Yep, it uses my cpu 98-100% constantly..
    Have to check how mutch memory it uses though,
    shouldn't be to mutch amount i think..

    :cheers:
