Re: Memory strangeness
I'm running an EPoX MF570sli mobo/AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ CPU, with an ATI
Radeon 1600 Pro PCIe. My PC started with 2 GB of OCZ Platinum DDR2 800
(PC6400) - SDRAM, to which I added another identical 2 GB last month. My
WEI is only 4.6, the "Graphics" score. My RAM score was 5.9 with 2 GB and
still 5.9 with 4 GB. (CPU 5.1, HD 5.2, Gaming Graphics 4.9)
As you said, "I just stuck the RAM in" and it worked. No trauma at all.
