to give your 3000+ a "run for the money". In some situations, the lower

For memory, try to use a dual channel config (i.e. 2x512MB if you are
on a budget).

Will this thing boot from my sata without drivers? The MSI wouldn't...
You mean the 690G/SB600 ? No idea. It is an ATI chipset. That is all

and I don't know how happy people are with it.
I built a PC with the M2A-VM HDMI mobo, ATI690G, a month or so ago. I had
to use the drivers from the mobo's CD, but at the time I didn't have a
bootable XP Pro SP2 CD (and the XP is, well, um...!).
So far, the rig is running well and cool - only 45W at idle with Cool 'n'
You don't understand Newton's Third Law of Motion?
It's not rocket science, you know.
