Which would bear out that my using nVidia GFX cards has coloured my
judgement in that I probably notice requests for help with them more.

Thanx for the input anyway.


Are you sure?

Because the crucial.com memory check indicates 4Gb max as it has 2 DIMM slots, as they don't seem to do 4Gb non ECC DIMMS, unless it is a new revision.

You must be referring to the M5A78L then.

"M4A78LT-M LE" != "M4A78LT-M"

Well, by zooming into the pictures at
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131672 I could
clearly see there are 4 DIMM slots ... Also, under the pictures it
isclearly stated that there are 4 DIMM slots.


On the other hand, the devil being in the details, the difference may
have something to do with the trailing "LE". The model I'm talking
about is M4A78LT-M, while your link points to a M4A78LT-M LE. Vendors
are well known for doing that -- making various variants of a product
in order to cut costs (but mainly just to confuse the buyer).


Also, please don't cc me, I'm subscribed to the list. I'm getting all

Probably because I'm too old to need the bleeding edge, but the nvidia

even able to get it to run with a 64-bit kernel in a 32-bit userland...

I'm usually in that camp myself. However last hardware upgrade, I
decided to go from 32 to 64 bit, which meant changing (almost)
everything. I thought that, at the price, that mobo would be an "older"
model. Apparently not. On the plus side; It'll suit me for a longer
period of time.

I doubt I could have managed that.

Except when the proof is actually *in* the pudding...

Anyway, since American pudding is nothing like British pudding we
altered the phrase. And now our way is the right way, gosh darn it!!!
