DRAM Timing : (Auto) / Manual

DRAM Burst Lenth : (4) / 8

DRAM Queue Depth : (4 level) / 3 level / 2 level / 1 level

DRAM Command Rate : (2T Command) / 1T Command

Write Recovery Time : (3T) / 2T

DRAM tWTR : (3T) / 1T

AGP Aperture Size : (128mb)

AGP Fast Write : (Enabled)

AGP 3.0 Calibration Cycle : (Enabled)

Hi (=DoM=),

Most of the DRAM stuff is best left on defaults. if it has an auto, it should be on auto. Most of it looks OK.

If you have a 64 or 128Mb Vid card your AGP aperture is best set to 32Mb, any lower and your system may become unstable, any higher gives no benefit and may even lower performance.

AGP fast Write should work with most modern vidcards and mobo's but can cause problems for particular card and mobo combinations, if it works with it on leave it, if it doesn't turn it off, you're not going to lose much.

AGP calibration cycle? Must be a mobo manufacturer thingy, I don't have it.

PCI Delay Transaction is normally enabled.

I can't remember what OS you are running, but having a swap file to large on some older OS's can cause problems, if you are setting it yourself consider setting a min fairly high (say 500mb) with no max.

Have fun
