Well I got all of the harware put together now. It's nice, It's super quiet
with plenty of air flow.
I disabled the Sil SATA controllers on the MB...
I installed my memory in 128Bit mode using banks 2 and 3, I'm not sure what the
difference is really, just that 128Bit mode sounded better than 64 Mode. Anyone
have a benchmark that I can compare to? Ubench?
I am now downloading the AMD-64 FreeBSD 5.4 discone-iso, although it's not
linked to from the Download FreeBSD links.
Is there *any* video card chipset that will run in hardware (X11) accelerated
mode on FreeBSD-AMD 64?
