I just got this baby processor.
here is my computer specs:
MOTHERBOARD (my specs):
Model: MS-7252, 1.1A, K9NGM
Chipset: NVIDIA, GeForce 6100 Rev. A2
Southbridge: NVIDIA, nForce 410/430 MCP
Sensor: Winbond, W83627EHF
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. Ver 3.30
Package: Socket AM2 (940)
FSB: HyperTransport supporting speed up to 1GHz (2000MT/s)
Memory (specs from the website, not my specs):
Supports Dual DDR II 533/667/800
4 DDRII DIMMs (240pin / 1.8V)
Supports a maximum memory size up to 8GB.
Graphics card (my card):
ATI X1600 pro
1. What should the Bus speed be in BIOS for my 6000+ to work at its best? (I think the bus speed I have currently is 200 Mhz)
2. What is the optimum memory to get for my new processor? Please give me details about the size? speed? (After researching, it said something about matching the CPU external speed with the system's RAM speed to get the best performance but I gave up. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/133/2)
3. Is there anything else I really need to add or know in order to be sure I am taking maximum advantage of this processor?
Thank you and will be hearing shortly.
