Default System Check

See what you mean, nice little program with some nice features. It does show DVD capabilities as 48x CD read and 16x DVD read. Sisoft may not so intelligent afterall. DVD's run perfectly so why worry.
It does however show System XP 1800+ (1.53mhz) as XP 2000+ at 1683mhz which is nice with temps about 30 degrees.
Memory seems to be slower than it should be. Tried altering RAS to cas 2-2.5 and back with no apreciable difference.
Just built the system before Christmas and exploring the the O/clocking facilities of MSI KT3 ultra m/board, very simple for those who have no experience with overclocking.
MSI MX440SE-T video card is a very good budget end card and have been very impressed so far as the PC total cost was under 350.
