Does anyone have any details on what these PCI Express Graphics options
are for in the P5AD2 BIOS?

PEG Link Mode
PEG Root Control
Link Latency
Slot Power
Buffer Length

I'm having some peculiar MSWord behavior in Office XP - document header
graphics are appearing and disappearing; document not displaying
accurately. Just wondering if it makes any sense to tweak one of these
BIOS options.

Thanks for any help.

PEG mode is a form of graphics overclocking mode that asus is now using on
the 915 and 925 boards and is now mentioned on their web page after the
board was slammed over at www.tomshardware.com and can stop some graphics
cards from working properly with the motherboard if left running.

Here is the mention of PEG mode in his review of the board.

Hope that helps.
