when i use sandra to run a benchmark does it benchmark all my DIMM's as a total(3x256mb DDR) or does it just use a certain amount of the ram? the reason im askin is i used to have 512 and i got a certain score and when i went up to 712 the score actually went down

Well I never had this kind of trouble, however I only went from 128 to 256.
sandra, while popular, isnt very accurate "real world wise"
its very much a synthethetic benchmark that most take with a grain of salt. people have experienced all sorts of wierd rises and falling in their benchmarks.
do a net search for something better... i know real ones exist out there... ?membench???
The lack of thermal protection on Athlon's is cunning way to stop morons from using AMD.
