I also upgraded Geforce 7800 GT with a beastly and beloved ASUS Geforce 8800 GTX. x64 version flat out refused to install due to lack of CMPXCHG16B instruction.
Once installed, memory was recognized, but with default BIOS DRAM settings on AUTO, it would switch to DDR333. With 4GB working, I attempted Windows 10 x86 install again, and it worked fine this time!
I did a bit of research, and it was due to earlier Athlon 64 CPU memory controller not being able to keep up with 4 DDR400 DIMMs. I changed DRAM settings to manual: DDR400, 2-3-2-5, 2T (was 1T for just two DIMMs). It does feel slower then more modern PCs, but still entirely usable.
Asus was founded in Taipei (Taiwan) in 1989 as a motherboard manufacturer and is now the number one manufacturer of motherboards in the world, commanding almost a 40% market share of the motherboard business.
Over 420 million motherboards have been sold since 1989. ASUS takes its name from Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology that symbolizes wisdom and knowledge.
