    I'd like to know if there's an easy way to put speed into my Asus P4S800 2.8GHz MB. I am running Win XP Pro build 2600. Memory 2x 512 DDR PC3200. HDD 80Gigs.

    What can be done to moderately speed up my computer, I was thinking of throwing in another 512 mb

    2 x 512 is a gig of ram. You aren't going to notice more but its your money. 2.8 ghz is a fast machine. What are you trying to accomplish? Benchmarks?

    Your video card is your weak link. If you are going to spend money for performance that is where to look. A 9800 pro or a 6600 GT would turn that rig around if it is games giving you grief.

    My graphics card has a regular plug for the monitor as well as a s-video plug, It say's to hook-up an LCD or regular TV that sport an s-video plug as well. I've never used it. I will look into getting a new card, so there's no little tweaks i should do to pump-up (over-clock) this CPU of mine?


    Thanks for the help...
