asus a7n8x 2400xp
(overclocked 166x13.5 now runs perfectly at 2800xp
specs)a saving of 300 EURO or USD whatever!
I havent tried agp 8x , it should work, but I dont know cos I dont have one. Nevertheless GF4-4200 runs like a mad man. bare in mind the difference between 4x and 8x is negligable read tomsharware articles on the subject.
I dont know about firewire stock a7n8x does'nt have one. although delux version does.
nvidia drivers for audio don't support full duplex, use alsa drivers instead.
nforce2 should be faster than kt400. even in linux.
