Congrats! Looks like a great machine

It seems like your motherboard uses an Intel 430VX chipset. So even though the maximum RAM is 128MB, the cacheable limit is 64MB. You might be getting a performance hit with your 81MB.

80x1024=81920k...Assuming it's 80mb (64+16 or some variation..) you could just pull the 16mb portion to see if there's a difference.
