Sorry guess I should have stated, That was what XP 32bit did on my old rig. Also If you have onboard video then yes some is reserved for the "gpu" but if it is an add in than no it does not.


speaking of 7 how does it do performance wise against vista 64bit vs 64 bit?

I was a little dissapointed with a couple programs that didn't work on 7(of course this can be expected with beta/RC1 software) but the performance is really amazing to me compared to Vista, especially IE8 is very fast.

I don't have any benchmark scores for yah and I really haven't tested any 3D apps/games yet with it but just the speed of windows and windows applications are night and day faster than Vista IMHO.

S'okay, I'll get us back on-topic. I post quotes BEFORE my responses, fyi.

For the Kuma chip, you only need the 1802 BIOS, since it is a tri-core with one of the cores disabled. All the tri-core Phenoms are supported with the 1802 BIOS, although there is no official BIOS support for the Kuma.
ORLY? THX DOOD. (srsly, did not kno it) I thawt the 3cores were treated same as 4x Pheens. So which BIOS is better? the 1802, 2001, or other? I need CPU and RAM flexibility and stability. Thx!

To run 4 slots stably, you may have to enable "2T" timing under DRAM settings. To run fast, you should only use the first 2 slots. I just bawt a 2x2GB kit of OCZ.

Good deal. Someone beat me to the punch... LoL

Umm, it can definitely hurt to try the wrong BIOS. LoL! Right? Or did I miss something here? Sorry if I'm just dense!

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?

I know this was kinda already answered, but I wanted to add / back it up.
I bought 4GB (2x2GB) using only 2 slots on the mobo. Windows XP Pro only sees 3 GB total. Before this I had 4GB (4x1GB) using all 4 slots, and same OS saw 3.5GB as usable. LiL tidbit for you.

Any 64-bit OS should be able to see all 4 GB. For the M2N boards with 8GB total support (across 4 RAM slots, @ 2GB max per slot) you should avoid using more than 4 GB in 2 slots (as already stated by spaceballsrules).

I have used the 1802 BIOS with a 6400+ BE, and that was rock solid.
I am currently using the 2001 BIOS with my 9850, and so far so good.
I would get the 2001 BIOS just to be as updated as possible while still having great stability.
The only BIOS I have ever had problems with was the 2101 BIOS, which Asus has now pulled from the lineup anyway.
Hope this helps

Is there some sort of M2N32-SLI BIOS wiki?
Because THERE SHOULD BE ONE.
