I noticed that there are problems with the Asus board (via 133a), and I am just wondering if anyone knows any problems with the MSI 6309 (also a via 133a board) and the G400 max. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

I am getting that MSI board and have the max.

Thanks!

I've got them working together without a problem. AGP2x mode works fine and OpenGL and D3D apps work without problems. The only thing that bugs me is that the HDD access is slower than a snail when you turn DMA on in Windows. There's a new BIOS update on MSI's website (v1.3), I'm running v1.2 and everything's just fine. I installed 98(not SE), then AGPv4.00, then DX7, then PDv5.52. It's a great combo, I don't have any benchmark numbers right now, but I can get some later.

Almost forgot.... I have one of the first G400MAXs, so my card doesn't do AGP4x. Not that it really matters, but AGP2x and everything works just fine.
