Not a bad system.
TIP: Click Edit Part Listing and at the very bottom there is a checkbox to pick what machine you want linked under your name as MY PC.
Check it for this one.

A lump of Coal? heehee...


But serously, If you have not already then make sure you have the correct information because they often use more than one board in the same PC model number.

A couple of possable methods would be.
Use the product number (not model) to check the OEM board name is really NAGAMI2L. (ctrl-alt-S)
Look on the board (usually between pci slots) to check the manf. board number is A8N-LA.


A search for either number would find the information at HP. But not at Asus because its a custom OEM design not theres.

For example at HP my PC model #A1250N shows both a Asus A8AE-LE and MSI MS-7184. But the product #eg194aa-aba shows I have a Amethyst-GL6E and A8AE-LE.

I found my actual mobo on the HP website. It does support dual core.

Faster and Stable is always good.
Whats your 3DMark 2006 score?
Thats the graphics test for gamers.

Sometimes it depends on what you tweak.
Burning it up with no performance gain you want is pointless.

I have noticed a HUGE gain in just the 200 mhz over my last overclock (my previous overclock was 2700 Mhz) In the game Rigs Of Rods, with 2700 mhz i could drive one vehicle fine, and could hook up to another vehicle, but would notice a large amount of lag. Now at 2900 Mhz i can drive one vehicle towing another with no lag. I will test 3dmark 06 in a minute.
