Still at it, 'lol

So I just wanna make sure about this. I have a P-6860FX and installed a T9300 processor in it, which has a 800MHz FSB. If I upgraded the BIOS, is it possible to install DDR2 800MHz in it?

If I can only have DDR2 667, is there any point in installing two 320GB 7200RPM's in RAID 0, or will the RAM just bottleneck it. It currently has a 320GB 5400RPM but Vista says the 667 RAM is the limiting factor.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned in the thread, I just don't have the time to look through over 100 pages of replies lol.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but, isn't DDR2 667 ram ridiculously faster than most really high dollar raid set ups?

I know RAM is faster, but in my Vista Experience Index my score is 5.1, which is determined by my lowest sub-score which is the RAM. But what I really need to know is if DDR2-800 is supported in the P-6860FX

No the chipset say PM965 does not allow 800Mhz RAM to run at 800Mhz. 667Mhz is as high as you can go.

Your RAM will never bottleneck your HDD. Example your best RAIDs on your notebook might be say 100MB/s your RAM is closer to 4300MB/s. Will not bottleneck.

You are correct.

No and the Vista experience does not attempt to show true bottlenecks just relative in class.

Most models are made to fit most laptops but you need to make sure if your laptop uses EIDE or SATA. The P-6860FX uses EIDE

Does anyone get a gain in performance by removing the battery when using the power adapter? It might be just be, but it feels a little snappier. I am not sure if this is better or worse for the laptop or if there is something I should keep in mind. Any help would be appreciated
