I have an Asus A7N8X which supports XP Processors up to 400FSB and can take the same speed RAM. i current run an XP2400 at 266FSB and 1Gb of PC2100 RAM. I plan to upgrade to the XP3200 400FSB and 1Gb of 400Mhz Memory. My questions are as follows;
1) Will i notice a big performance increase?
2) What should i buy first as i can only buy one at a time.
3) What is the best memory to buy? I have heard a lot of good feedback on Corsair XMS memory. I want very fast memory.
4) I live in the USA at the moment and have no idea where to buy Corsair memory from out here. Does anyone know of any online reliable vendors for me?
I guess most people would say save and wait for PCI Express and buy a 64 bit processor but i plan to do that in a year or so once it drops in price. For now i need a short term cheap upgrade (under $400) which will give me that extra power to do my Uni work.......and play Lock On, Far Cry and Doom 3! My Ti4600 will be upgraded in the summer.
