    Just wondering if enabling side-banding could be deleterious to an i815E based system.

    It depends of your videocard/drivers. I need more info about your system.

    Wow, It's almost my system <IMG SRC="http://www.guru3d.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>SBA is disabled in bios of your videocard, so u will not be able to enable it without flashing.<P>&gt; By the way, can RivaTuner be removed via ADD/REMOVE<P>I hadn't created installer for RivaTuner yet, so it cannot be deleted via ADD/REMOVE

    So, you're saying that without this video BIOS flash I can't enable side-banding even with RivaTuner?<BR>And if that's true, would enabling it via RivaTuner (without the BIOS flash) introduce instabilities in my system?<BR>---------------------------------------------<P>By the way, I've looked for the video BIOS section on the ASUS website and can't seemto find it.

    OK then, I won't. I appreciate the insight and advice.<BR>Do you plan to write an installer for RivaTuner?<BR>I believe it would add a slickness and professionalism to it.
