If your board will not allow you to flash to the 2205 bios then you are SOL buddy. just kiding um you may want to make sure you have a removeable bios in case you do corrupt your bios and can't get it to post after a flash. If I get this one working I will try the flash myslef.

All though both instances would be for two different platforms/purposes so I see your point.
I actually started to write about those kinds of requirements, but I gathered from the OP's post and system that wasn't the case
I agree with you 100%

I don't think we have a NB multi for the CPU as the screen shot listed below shows all of our available Advanced Chipset options.
Ganged sets specific sticks of RAM to specific cores in the CPU. In your case N2G, each stick of RAM you have would be assigned one core of the CPU. In my case, each stick would be assigned 2 of the cores.
Unganged allows free sharing of all the RAM by all the cores.
I am not sure if there is a performance gain either way.

"CPU<->MCP655 HT Speed [4X]"
Isn't that the multiplier for the NB and CPU?

I was unable to get it to post again. I finally made a call the ASUS Tech support to see if they may have a magical set of instructions for me to try but all the tech's were to bussy so they had a guy take my name and number to call me back.

Your best bet is to get a 2x2GB kit. 4GB is the magic number.
I noticed that since I installed Windows 7 that it shows 4.00 gb( 3.00 gb usable)
In the System info screen. Before SP1 Vista, windows wouldn't show the full ammount of ram installed. 32 bit can only use 3.00 gb of ram?

It can use 4 I forget how to do it but someone here will know but even then you will only have about 3.5 usable do to system needs. In other words the system takes about 512mb's and stores that away for itself and will not share it.

Uhhh ok ... Maybe Windows 7 reserves 1 gb of ram for itself.

32-bit OS is limited to 4GB total RAM. The OS itself uses some of that, and the graphics cards use some as well. For you, after the OS and video cards have taken their share, you are left with 3GB to run your apps.
64-bit OS can utilize 128GB of memory IIRC.

that 512 is the video card ram used by windows. If you use a 1g video card then you would only see 3 gig of useable ram. At least that is the way I understand it. I have never run a 32 bit os since 2000 pro and I did not know near as much back then as I do now. Thanks OCN for that.

Now that I've tried Windows 7 I really don't want to go back to Vista. I may give Windows 7 64bit a try
