    Hi all. I was using SisSoft Sandra and it said to me "xxxCPU to PCI Bridge : PCI latency to HIGH.

    Okay thats all good and all, -I know I have an option in my BIOS that says PCI latency-, problem is......the lowest setting is like 32 and the highest is 288. I always thought you wanted less latency but does that mean I should set the BIOS to a higher number(right now it's set to 32) or is SisSoft Sandra wrong. Thanks for the input. :)

    Update: Okay I went ahead and just set the "PCI latency" to 128 to see what would happen......ran Sandra again and this time it said (at work so might be a little off) "xxxSound Card PCI Latency to HIGH" So I take it that in BIOS when I had it set to 32 that was right, so How am I supposed to change the latency from my CPU to the PCI bridge??!!!
