Test System Setup

 

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz (800MHz FSB) (Supplied by Spectrum Communications)

 

Memory: 2x Kingmax 256MB DDR-433 (Supplied by Kingmax Australia)

 

Hard Disk: Western Digital WD80 7200RPM (Supplied by Techbuy)

 

Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 9700 Pro (Supplied by ATI)

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP1

 

Drivers: ATI Catalyst 3.6

 

For more even testing, we disabled Core Cell technology on the MSI motherboard so the FSB was even between both motherboards.
