GIGABYTE 78GM
250GB SEAGATE HDD
2x1 GB DDR2 800 KINGSTON

How can i take full advantage of 3 core im using windows xp pro sp2/sp3

  3. Ungage? Where during Startup?
    The only thing you can do to ensure you are using all 3 cores is to get the right software.

    Most will not take advantage of more than 2 cores, and hence the big Dual vs Quad Debate.

    If multi-tasking, Windows will load stuff between the cores, so don't worry.
  4. ganged mode is 1x128bit dual channel

    unganged is 2x64 bit dual channel

    Some motherboards are reporting unganged as single channel at boot, this is not true, if you see anyone saying they have defective memory please point them to this post.

    Ganged will give higher sandra bandwidth at this time than unganged, this is because sandra does not fully support phenom and is working in 1 thread mode. Once sandra supports Phenom unganged 2x64bit will take the lead

    If you are running multi threaded benchmarks you need to be in unganged mode, this is the fastest way of running the system.
  5. sorry unganged, so what i need to do is just ignore it or what software to take full advantage of Phenom 8450 X3 B3 Stepping

    The 8600GT is a lot faster. With the 3450 you have the advantage of Hybrid Graphics

  7. 3450 +780G equal to ?
  8. Unganged is better. Leave it like that.
  9. ok thanks
  10. 8600gt better, no crossfire issues.
  11. Crossfire and Hybrid Crossfire are different approaches. Hybrid would suit him better than a 8600GT, I guess, since he's already going for a 780G mobo and could save some power by using Hybrid [while increasing performance in a scenario of need].
