Okay this is wierd. I have an AMD Athlon XP 3200+ but my computer thinks it's a 2500+. For one thing, why does it think this, and for another is it effecting performance?

The "properties" of my computer, System Information and dxdiag think it's a 2500+

The rest of my specs are:
ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe Motherboard
2x512MB Dual Channel Kingston Hyper-X
ASUS Radeon A9600XT

I'm running Windows XP SP2.

I don't know about everyone else but this seems really wierd to me. :tazz:

Thanks for your help.

this could be because they both use the same multiplier setting 11. the fontside bus speed on a 2500 xp is 166 and on a 3200 xp it should be set at 200 so check this in your bios. I know this because I use an overclocked 2500 at 3200 but remember your memory must be ddr 3200 (400mhz) for the higher bus speed.
