    Is this for memory in your system, or memory on the video card?

    Wow, nice program.

    I saw them discussing 'flashing dimms' over in XS, but i didn't really follow, but this is just cool!

    Thanks

    so this basically can be used to edit the settings on the ram so it defaults to certain speeds and timings ? this would rock if i still had that dell

    As dangerous as any program. You just gotta know how to use it or be wlling to accept that you might damage hardware during learning.
