So, this is the first computer I've put together, and these are the first run of benchmarks I have turned out. Anyway, everything should be more or less comparable to any other dual processor workstation with a similar board (nForce 3 250, memory for ony one processor, etc...) If anyone has a similar board with 2 Opteron 246's and you have benchmark numbers for it, please let me know if I'm close (or better, hehe) in whatever areas. If anything isn't where it should be PLEASE tell me so I can work on finding out why! Just trying to see if my system is performing as it should.

Well, I'm not quite ready to post my new line of Specs (Which will include a 32bit-64bit comparison, as well as my conversion from the PATA 7200 RPM 80Gig to a SATA 10K 74 Gig Raptor). Why? Because I have this weird bug. My memory performance in 64bit is about 1/5th of what it is in 32-bit. 802 MB/s. I'm trying to figure out why and if anyone else has run across this I'd love to know about it so I don't re-invent the wheel here trying to fix it. - Or Un-invent it for that matter...

Thanks!

once you get everything worked out... what will be the function of your new workstation? (what applications will you likely run? any games?)

I play games in my off time - which I haven't done in about 4 weeks. (Right after I got it I put in an old hard drive, booted up, and played Homeworld 2 for a few hours. (Ran great! Much Much smoother than on my dual Athlon MP 1800 machine. (Which has since bit the dust HARD).

Aside from that, I run FormZ - architectural modeling software, 3D Studio Viz, AutoCAD, Macromedia Flash, Photoshop CS, Maya, Rhino, Lightwave, and anything else that has free trial offers. (Sketchup is my newest toy - not liking it thus far, and no - it isn't a condiment modeling software. It is for architecture too.)

I also play Praetorians, Sim City 2000 and 3000(of course), Worms Armageddon, etc...

My next upgrade is going to be an Nvidia Graphics card (either a workstation or a 6800 - not sure yet what I can afford.) That's about it though. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask - but try to answer some of mine too!!! (just kidding around.)

Thanks

Also, if anyone knows, what kind of bandwidth should I expect form dual channel Ragistered Ram? I have 2 512 matched sticks of OCZ DDR400 at 2-3-2-6 and according to CPUZ I am running in single channel mode. I am getting around 4600-4800 MB/s right now. Is that about right and CPUZ is wrong? Or what?

Thanks!!!

Allright,

So, I have some benches comparing 32bit to 64bit from Sandra finally. (Getting Windows 64 installed was a heinous something or other. It killed my 32 bit windows installation on a seperate partition, and then a seperate drive the first two times I installed it. Dual Boot was HOPELESS. So, I have a HDD on me desk with 64bit, and an HDD in my computer with 32bit, and I unplug one and plug in the other depending on how I feel. Anyway, I'm putting together some final results and will post them soon! Promise.

And if I can get my futuremark stuff to run I'll post those too.
