    Post Do you understand the difference between....

    .... DDR1 and DDR2?
    .... PCI-Express and AGP?
    .... 925 and 915?
    .... Hypertransport vs Hyperthreading?

    ... if so - how would you like to write 'idiot' guides for HEXUS on these? PM me or post on this thread

    Please cover the difference between PCI-E and PCI-X - I've seen review sites get that wrong!
    Now go away before I taunt you a second time.

    They are both chipsets for the new Intel LGA775 CPUs, if I'm not mistaken, the 915 is called Alderwood, and the 925 is the more powerful Grantsdale.

    Are we allowed to slate the new stuff for having pins on the motherboard in the middle of our very cack description of the difference?

    pls.

    Seriously tho...we DO need a big, easy to read, round up of this stuff, cos my head hurts from it all.

    PCI express is a vital component for us ALL, irrespective of our INTEL or AMD. or ATI /NIVIDA loyalties
