  1. Alrite, so is there any other reasons for upgrading the mobo? Btw i have ddr3 , gd cpu, im happy with sata ii ans usb ii.
  2. I asked this same question here so many years ago, I was told that the HT speed can be increased when Overclocking, I don't think you will ever see the HT run at it's maximum supportable speed.

    There would be a little difference in speed however the more heavier the task the more noticeable it would be.
    It wouldnt be that noticable just playing games.
  4. I see thanks for all ur reply guys. I got another quick offtopic question: is it faster to get 2 sepreat hdd or to partition a single hdd into 2?
  5. It says 2000 which is correct but becuase it is DDR it is effectivley 4000, 2200 = 5400 and so on
