|SiSoft System Analyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant|
While trying to determine exactly what the AGP bus was doing on my old LX6 motherboard, running a Matrox G-200, I followed Ant's advice and downloaded SANDRA. Up until now I was using WinTune to check system speeds and settings, but I ran up SANDRA for the first time and ... finally, a system reporting tool that really does the business. My advice is ... stop reading this and get downloading !!
Sandra Standard 2003/SP1 9.44 uses MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Components) 2.5 or later. If you're running on Windows 98, you may need to update MDAC before Sandra will install (other versions of Windows have this level of MDAC built in). If that's the case, head over to this page and grab MDAC 2.7 SP1 (the same version that ships with XP Service Pack 1).
