I'm not running vista either...

AMD Athlon 3200+ overclocked from 2ghz-2.8ghz
ECS KN1 SLI Lite socket 939
1g patriot ddr 3200
80gb hitachi
320gb seagate
PNY 7800gtx 256mb
Case Xclio A380 w/ 2x 250mm and 1 120mm fan

I'm probably going to get a new cpu/mobo/ram/gfx card when Crysis comes out though.

Again? We've had these system spec threads before. Mine hasn't changed so I'm not crazy about typing all that up again. The last time I ran Vista on my primary desktop it ranked at least 5.0.

The amount doesn't really justify it... what are your ram timings?

hrmm you probably can't edit yours..


08-07-2007 19:49:23

I see. It's the timings.


08-07-2007 20:06:58

TFOAF your mom was right; you can't handle vista.

I don't think I've participated in one of these.

Adding lots of extra RAM will very often slow down memory performance, that's why RAM beyond 2GB is not recommended for non-server systems (which is what we tried to tell you, IIRC).

If you're running three 1GB sticks, or one 2GB and one 1GB stick, then you're likely not running in dual-channel mode which is significantly faster than single channel mode. Dual-channel mode requires an even number of matched sticks, usually two as not all boards support dual-channel on four sticks. Some nVidia chipsets will use three sticks with two in dual-channel and the sole stick in single-channel mode, but I'm not sure if the current Intel chipsets support that or not.

All that said I wouldn't consider 4.8 a poor score, especially for a laptop which typically lags well behind desktops for similarly spec'd components.

I really wish the Vista Upgrade Advisor for XP would give those ratings.
