i updated my processor from 1100 mhz amd to athlon xp 2000, i flashed the bios that went ok, the problem is most 3d games crash all the time, i put the 1100 chip back in and they all work fine with no system hangs, my system is a geeforce 2 64mb mx440, 256 mb sd ram pc133 , 20 gig hd, soundblaster 1024, 300 watt power supply, windows xp media edition, is it my agp card that isnt compatible with my xp chip ? was the step from 200mhz fsb to 266mhz fsb too much for it ? i dony know what else to do, ive checked dimms, flashed bios to current and installed latest agp drivers, im stuck ?
While it is a good idea to have DDR whenever possible, it's not an absolute necessity. It depends on the chipset and motherboard. I have an xp1800+ (266fsb) running pc133 SDRam on a Gigabyte board and it works just fine.
