    That board has tons of drivers, bios updates, and info. Check it out and let us know what you find out. Also what drivers are you using now? And what performance issues are you having that make you want to improve your current setup?

    Below are the direct downloads for:

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_udp_winxp_4.24 these are the ones I'm using and havent had any problems. My board is the 1.04 version so kinda old. Are you having any issues? I know this board is very picky with the ram that it uses. and the bios setting can be touchy also.

    When I installed the 4.24 driver (nice NvMixer), I noticed that the the custom equalizer settings aren't being saved. Anyway, I have a 5200 128 MB. I have the latest drivers from the nvidia site installed for the card and installed the 4.24 driver for the board. A7N8X2.0 Deluxe UBER BIOS R1007. I have 2 sticks of Hynix 256 MB PC 2100 (HY5DU561622AT-H) OC'd to 3200 (178 MHz), timings 6-3-3-2.5. With this rig, I get only 5460 3D marks (<- THAT's the problem) in 3DMark2001SE (pro version)

    then, maybe I should go in for the radeon 9600se? I don't know, maybe I have the 5200 64 bit version. At this link ( http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/.../asus-ati.html ), the 9600se has a easy victory over the 5200 64

    Hhhmmm, I've never really paid any attention to the mb/sec. numbers in memtest, I think they're not too important as long as you don't have any errors. Sisoft Sandra should be the test for memory speed.
