    Hi, I can't seem to find the correct answer to this problem. A retailer sells the AMD 4200 Dual core with the following code: ADA4200DAA5CD. My understanding is that this is a Toledo? I thought the ADA4200DAA5BV was the Manchester core. However, I queried this with the retailer and they...

    Question on x1900CF clock speeds

    Well, having returned the dodgy X1800xt. I managed to find a X1900 crossfire edition card (brand new) I got it today but noticed the core and memory speeds are not up to X1900xt standards. They should be 625/725mhz, but mine are showing as 500/600mhz. Is this normal or do I have a dodgy...

    'd like to ask whether the X1900 Crossfire edition card is like the X1900XT or is it a slower/lite edition (e.g. X1900GT, etc)? I understand it has one DVI slot with the crossfire connector rather than 2xDVI. Are there any benchmarks with the CF card in single use? (It can be used on it's...

    Question on 4x512mb RAM

    Hi I'm looking at adding an additional pair of RAM to my current set. Since I am on a very tight budget I can't afford to buy a pair of 2x1gb at the moment (with the increase in price!) So I have seen another pair of 2x512mb RAM I want to add to my current pair. Thus making 4x512mb. I...
