  1. Dear frens, my request is a bit long but please dont get bored reading it. Any suggestions will be most welcome. I will acknowledge my results.

    My system specs are on the bottom of this page.

    1) what is th difference between the nforce4 AMD platform driver and the other AMD/INTEL X16 driver?

    2)My A64 3500+ (manchester) 2.2 GHZ is OCed to 2.5 GHZ thru the bios and clockgen . Do i need 2 adjust any voltage, FSB etc etc settings? (am noob in OCing !!)

    3) what GPU and CPU tempetature is ok for BFG 7800GT OC (OCed to 500/1150) Is it too high? Should i go to 450/1100? Please look in my system specs for hardware info.

    4?is it ok to put my case (with the right panel removed ie motherboad backsite) directly on the airflow of my Room airconditioner (16 degree C) or am i harming my rig withj iths type of cooling??

    5) when i run CPU benchmarks during 3dmark05 pro and 3Dmark06 pro
    my rig crawls at only 0,1,2 fps. is it normal?
