with the new LGA775 socket, you need a 915G, 915P or 925X chipset for the mobo

not only that, but the newer one will have pci-express (and i think they may get rid of agp)

if you still want to use the RAM that you have, you have to get the 915, cause the 925 only supports DDR2 ram

correct me if im wrong though . . .


cause this new processor/chipset/pci/ddr is confusing to me

why get the 533Mhz bus? get the 3 GHz with HT (800mhz fsb) and its $10 LESS!!


sometimes, i really don't understand newegg

you'll save $10, get a better processor, plus the mobo youre getting supports HT

What about the CACHE size? Isn't that important? The one Newegg was talking about has a bigger CACHE size than the one you're referring to.

umm . . . its the same cache . . .

same core - northwood

in fact, the only difference is that the one running HT is at 3 GHz while the 533 is 3.06 . . . which isnt really much of a difference

perhaps links would help

the one he's referring to - http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...116-154&depa=0


the HT one - http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...116-156&depa=0

if I were to get a P4, I'd definately get an 800MHZ bus with the processor

but I'd actually suggest an Athlon 64 3200+ with a Gigabyte K8N pro board

AGP and DDR1 is still really fast, with the newer PCI-express and DDR2 they will not be significantly greater first off, a lot of DDR1 modules outperform DDR2. and in terms of GFX card performance, PCI express is not a lot different from AGP at the moment
