I recently upgraded from an A7N8X-E / Athlon XP 3000+ to a A8N5X / A64 3200+ . I was wondering, when I was using my V4 4500 or my V5 5500 PCI under windows XP, it was always freezing. But now that I changed mobo/CPU, will it freeze all the time again or I can use it like on any other PCs?

been a while I used this V5 and I need to get it back up kicking :)

I have an Amd64 3200+ running with a Voodoo 5 5500 Pci on a mobo Soltek SL-K8TPro-939 but under Win2k (SP4) et no problem.
But the best is that you try it yourself to be sure.

I hat to set "boot from pci first" in my BIOS to avoid instant lockup after booting to desktop.

sorry for late reply & Thanks for the info.

I'm going to try once I get my SUN -> VGA converter so I plug my screen both inputs at the same time. (SUN/Sony monitor, dual input, one SUN and one VGA)
