I prefer 775Dual-VSTA because it has 2x ddr2 dimm and 2x ddr, really nice.
Ddr 2 seems to be twice as fast.
Really nice to have pci-e and agp. I wonder what happens if you install two videocards, agp and pci-e. Can you disable one using the other ?

You may find the helpful then http://www.computing...vsta/51851.html
Not sure how the particular set up above works but as a rule of thumb if 2 sticks of different speed Ram are paired together the faster one clocks backward to the slower speed.

Effectively yes, but it must be done in the BIOS unlike if one were onboard graphics and the other an add on card, the add on card normally overides the onboard graphics chip but again this can be altered in the BIOS.

thank you for learning me
can you help me with this about quad cpu's.
can a quad core cpu reach a maximum speed of 4 times the single core? same sizes.
they are great for multitasking but it is not doubling clock speed i guess, so how much faster is a quad core cpu i.c.w. a single core ?
i hope you dont mind this side question

No worries on both counts I am happy to help if I can :D
In answer to your question no, a 3GHz quad core has X4 cores each capable of running at 3GHz each, not a combined speed of 12GHz, a benefit of the quad core is that you can run multiple tasks at a similar if not the same speed dependent on the types of differing applications.
I hope this answers your question but just in case this info http://www.tech-faq....ssors-work.html may make more sense than me :D

thank you for your splendid answer. very interesting, a quad core cpu has four cores whom reach a certain clockspeed written in ghz.
a quad core duo contains 8 cores ? 2x4
i3 is triple core
i5 has five cores
i7 has 7 cores

awesome
