I posted this some time ago:

my honest time was 1min 57sec. 2min ..
Intel D915PBLL Socket 775 ATX Motherboard ..
Intel Pentium 4 520 2.8Ghz Processor
Ram ..512mb of DDR2..

I am going to post this then reboot and run that test again... i've got a few things running and it's been awhile since a reboot..
No faster
I think the speed would improve a lot with another RAM module.. the board supports up to 4gb.

I have double the ram now and I was surprised time almost the same 1:55 min..
anyone have any idea why the poor improvement on this test?

I was sure I was going to do much better because of a test I did before and after installing the new RAM.

I used a 508mb photo i just happened to have .. I opened the folder and right clicked the photo and then told it to open with PhotoShop.. so PS had to open also.

Ram time
512mb ................. 1min 33seconds
1024mb ..................... 37seconds

Homemade Athlon 64 3500, Shuttle XPC, I think San Diego core, Nforce4 chipset, 1G dual channel DDR PC3200, PCI express 16x Nvidia geforce 6200 w/256M DDR (I doubt that part matters), SATA 250G HD, windows XP PRO. Ran the same speed over four tests--


(I wonder how much benefit I'd get from a 64bit OS?)
