Windows 7: hypertransport 3.0 worthwhile upgrade over 1.0 i.e 1000? help plz

hypertransport 3.0 worthwhile upgrade over 1.0 i.e 1000? help plz

wasn't sure where to post this so have put it in general.

Im using an AM2 Motherboard that supports phenom II 940 and DDR2 1066 but is limited to a 1000 hypertransport link.

What im wandering is would I see any performance increase by using a motherboard with 3.0 hypertransport over my 1.0?

The cost of an 790GX motherboard is around 90+ is it worth the upgrade? I don't wanna move on to AM3 just yet, happy with DDR2 for now...

I doubt you would see any difference as the machine must be pretty quick already.

Any worthwhile driver installer applications? Recommendations?
Hello and thanks for reading. I'm one of those people who hates the idea of not having the latest drivers (yes, this means even if the hardware is working perfectly). While I've been installing my own drivers from the manufacturer sites for years, I wouldn't mind having a program that reliably...

HyperTransport (AMD Phenom II X6 1075T) causing BSODs
Recently purchased a new computer. I was having issues with installing Windows 7 and learned that HyperTransport is sometimes the cause of the issue and by turning it from "Auto" in the BIOS settings to "X1" can resolve the issue, and for me it did. After installing Windows 7 and waiting to see...
