-- Ram Benchmarks

   Iíll Primarily be using SiSoft Sandra 2000 Standard to measure memory bandwidth. I found benchmarking with Quake3 wasnít useful because of the bottleneck the TNT2U card creates.  Iíll be using Nortonís System mark so that at least there is something to validate  the SiSandraís consistency.


Note:  The way Iím going to benchmark is to raise the FSB until a failure is reached.  I started at 133 Mhz as this is what both sticks are rated at.
