Short question: If I have a AMD1600+ on a A7N8X, can I make use of dual channel memory? Or do I need a processor that works on higher FSB? Did I get this right at all?
Or stated differently: Should I get one stick or two? CAS2.5, right?
Thank you, but I decided to get the 2100, since I didn't have any more money left. But I guess for the xp1600 the 2100 DDR is good enough and I will upgrade it, when I go to the 333FSB proc with dual channel memory.
You did the better choice for now. An XP1600+ may not gain much from the nForce 2's optimized memory interface, however any XP2400 and above will definitly, as shown by the high performance boost the small 33MHZ rise the XP2700+ has over the XP2600+.
