View Full Version : PCI Mode?

11-06-04, 02:26 PM
Both Max request queue depth and AGP rate do not appear to be optimal on OS level. Is that normal or is there something wrong with my setup? I've already tried reinstalling nforce and detonator drivers, that didn't solve it.

This is what my AGP settings look like:

My specs are:
GF 6800 GT
NF7-S 2.0 (latest bios version)
AXP2500 @ 2.5 ghz
Windows XP w/SP2

That's normal. If the slider was on PCI mode you would have a problem, but since it says 8X you are fine. My comp was running on PCI mode and getting bad results, but I installed chipset drivers and then it was running AGP 8X. Basically, if you have the latest chipset drivers for AGP then you should have no problems. I think the OS part of it is the lowest settings the OS is capable of running and since the "restore defaults" button is greyed out, it means that you are running at the "default" optimal settings, which are 8X, 256 Max Request, Fast Writes and Sideband Addressing, respectively.

Ok. Thanks!
