No, that's silly. You can't compare the nForce2 to the i850E, it's apples to oranges. You see, the biggest problem is that one is an AMD chipset and the other a P4 chipset. And AMD processors have their good and bad points, which are different than the P4's good and bad points, making a memory only comparison on those chipsets impossible.
It would be like comparing Pirelli tires on an NSX to Michelin tires on a Porche. You'd never know if the winner did better because of the tires or the suspension.
