Question about Motherboards
Thanks for the quick answer on the amount of memory my ASRock P4VM8 board will handle. I need to know If I can run PC3200 in both memory slots. The Manual is a bit off on this subject. I ran the Crucial memory scan and it will handle both PC2700 and PC 3200. The manual shows that # 1 slot will handle 3200 and slot #2 will handle PC 2700? Right now I'm running PC 3200 in 512 Mb in both slots. I'm going to buy the memory tonight I just need to know which type to get. I hope it's PC3200 as Fry's has a good deal on it at my local store for a matched pair of 1 GB each stick. I need to free up as much speed as I can. Vista is a bit of a system drag. I'm going to purchase the Creative Sound Blaster X-FI Xtreme 7.1 to take more load off the main board chips. I read that it will free up the system up by 15% or more by using a PCI sound card is this so? I liked the on-board AC 97 chip but Vista cuts my 4 speaker sound down to 2 no matter what drivers I get.
I recommend buying the memory from crucial which is 100% guaranteed to work on your system, if you want to buy the memory at a local store, please print out or write the memory type down on a paper from the crucial memory scanner to know the right type of memory to buy.
