An AMD 3400+ doesn't mean its a 3.4 GHz which means it isn't as fast as a 3.4 GHz.

All mis-leading marketing crap.

... and don't give me bullshit that it has the "power" of a 3.4 GHz.

so amd 3400+ (with 2.2 ghz) is slower than p4 3.4 ghz cpu?:lookaround:

No....Just because its clock speed isnt 3.4GHz doesnt mean is is not upto Par with an Intel 3.4GHz. The AMD marketing Scheme is confusing, but the 3400+ was made to compete with the 3.4Ghz microchip made by Intel. As I said Before the AMD 3400+ will win in Gaming Applications. Like just about every other AMD chip. Intel makes good chips, but for Gaming and Gamers, AMD is the way to go.:nodding:

cool thanks for clarifying that problem. Another ques: can u have a system with different types of ram like pc2100 and pc3200?

Yes as long as they're in pairs.

So, 2 pc2100 and 2 pc 3200 paired together, yes.

But 1 pc2100 with a pc3200 may or may not work. Even if it does, it won't reach full performance and the pc3200 may only perform up to pc2100.

This is because RAM is usually paired together.

If its a 3 slot mobo, 2 of one type and 1 of other should be fine. But 1 each will have problems.

Oh and the Jerome post 2 post above, it's a load of bullshit coming from an AMD fan.

Yes.. I think. If its all, say, 184-pin (or whatever the # is), and your mobo supports up to pc-3200 (400 mhz), then you could get a stick of pc3200 and a stick of 2700. It's backward compatible. At least, on one of my AMD computers it is.

Yes as long as they're in pairs.

Ram only needs to be run in pairs if it is being used with dual channel DDR, or it is Rambus type ram. You can mix ram as long as it is of the same type, but as mentioned above the faster ram will slow to perform at the speed of the slowest ram in the system.

Occasionally issues develop from mixing ram but this is dependant on your system and its capabilities. Most of the time its not a problem.

Yeah AMD is best for gaming right now. Just a little bit faster though.
