Hello.
I got a Q, becouse for a moth i'll be able to switch from my current P4 3.4 1 GB Gell 2-2-2-5 setup to nForce 4 SLI (Asus mb).
I want to be sure, that 4x512 will works fine on it with A64 or A64x2 (maybe, depends on price).
Can You give me any advice ? Now i got 2x512, but i want to buy another pair of this memory.
What do You think ?
Thanks,

Peacemaker.

The motherboard matters little with an A64... the "memory controller" is built into the core. If you're going to use 4 sticks make sure you get an A64 based on one of the new cores, San Diago or Venice, These have an updeted controller that fixes problems with addressing 4 sticks

Thx for so qiuck reply.
I'm noob in A64 systems, but i think its time to switch to A64 from my system setup. I think, AMD setup should be better than nForce4 SLI Intel Edition. And cheaper also.
From years i was using Intel's setup's, but now its time to change somethink ;)
Once again thx.

Peacemaker.

p.s.

There will be 6800GT/U SLi also :)

i'm thinking about new case, with a lot of space and wich can hepl me build real quaiet air cooling pc.
Can You look on this ?

You should have no probs with 4 sticks, just dont expect to OC:) Also you will probably(depending on cpu) have to run them with the 2T command rate which kinda kills mem performance.

At NCIX.com....but that's here in canada. Probably not the best way for you to get one.

Well... i hope i'll be able to buy A64x2 4400+ as soon as it be avaible.
I'm plannig run it on Asus mb or DFI (i don't care about OC, i just don't OC my sys). Asus has got a lot of space betwen SLI graphic cards (i'm planning to put some nv5 on this GT or Ultra's)

But, i read on some forum, that 2T really don't kill any performance (1-3 perf. loos on usually aplications, only SisoftSandra shows about 20% diffrence). I'm confused... If its true... well, i hope it can be.

Greetings,

Peacemaker.

using 2T really isnt good. i had ddr500 ram, 4 sticks of it and at 2t my system was noticeably slower. hl2 would sit at 66 fps, but when i went to 2 sticks at 1t it ran at 130 all the time. sure, in some situations 2t may not be a big deal.. but for games.. dont do it. intel systems arent affected by 2t but amd systems are very affected by it.
