I have for some time been using a Duron 1.6 in a VIA KT133 based board with sdram.

I am generally happy with the performance of the system but wonder whether the chipset & memory is limiting what the Duron can do, and whether changing to a VIA KT400A board ( not many options available now) with DDR memory would be significant.

How much bandwidth can the Duron 1.6 use?

( Sandra gives a memory bandwidth of 950 or so MB/s which seems an aweful lot and Sandra specs for the KT400A at nearly 2900 MB/s seems over the top? )

I have other non performance related reasons for making making such a change otherwise I wouldnt bother, but I would like to know all the +'s

It's your chipset and memory that will limit bandwidth.To get a good idea of where you are you can download Everest Trial version.Under the benchmarking section there are charts comparing various set-ups.Just hit the refresh button to bench your system.
