Will upgrading my motherboard lead to a PERCEPTIBLE increase in speed?
Posted on 1999-12-12
I use Dragon Dictate (voice recognition software) in Word 97, a combination which requires a hell of a lot of RAM, a fast chip, etc.
PIII 533 B (i.e. can run at 133 MHz)
512 RAM (4 sticks of 128 running at 66 MHz)
My motherboard: ASUS P3B-F (440BX), whose "official" limit is
Hard drive: brand new, runs at 7200
My question: Would I see a NOTICEABLE change in speed if I
were to buy a faster motherboard, even though my RAM only
runs at 66 MHz?
Thank you for your help.
