Decreased hyper transport speed? (*islost*)
What's that do, is that bad? lol will it slow down the potential performance alot?
Right now I wanted to upgrade so I can edit HD footage / do more CPU intensive things lol right now 1080P footage goes out of sync when I watch it due to my CPU lacking, I can watch 720P fine but trying to edit it is a bit hard,
Oh and I do play games too, like crysis, and wanted to increase performance there too...
do you think upgrading to a 9850 quad would help me with this?
Is that the drivers? My mobo is foxconn nforce 590sli, but nvidia is the maker I think.. lol
Anyway how would I go about installing that? Just running it normally?
Theres my motherboard, they don't show AM2+ socket support ='|Edited by MiyaDV - 12/17/08 at 3:20am
