just purshased the asus-m2a74-am mobo with Mushkin EM2-6400 DDR2-800 2GB and AMD Athlon X2 7550 (95W) OEM Dual-Core Socket AM2+, . noticed when trying to install xp takes forever like the computer crawls! because the memory is 800mhz do i have to change the mem clock value to 400mhz rather then 200mhz?

what HDD and ODD, that is what would really make it go slow (if they are both IDE drives and on the same cable then that is your problem)

no hdd and drives are sata and never had this problem with the old sysytem? Is it because of new mobo it just takes longer?

i set it to auto. I'm at a loss here! Sopposed to be quicker then my old system but it crawls. After 2 hours to install xp it installed in classic mode for some reason? This never happened before. :fou:

Can't find the specs on that ram but i wouldnt mind betting it's the wrong ram and is the cause of the slowness, that moboard needs low density non ecc it's more expensive than the regular ram.
