I just built a new machine with an AMD 64 x2 5000+ CPU, ASUS M2N32 sli deluxe wireless mother board ect ect. My question is do I need to reinstall windows home to get the full performance out of this machine (please no switch to XP 64 suggestions, I'm waiting for vista to get the drivers for the rest of my hardware).
I am showing 2 CPU's in the Task Manager and my G15 Logitech keyboard shows 2 CPU's. I've heard rumors that unless you do a full reload the kernel won't allow full potential. I don't want to do this as I have 30 GB's of programs loaded, not counting user data.
Any one knowledgeable in this field?
