Did intel start the 800 FSB CPUs at P-IV 2.4Ghz. I have never seen them down here. Let alone P-IV 2.4 Ghz.

You might want to see what the price difference is between P-IV 2.4 Ghz @ FSB 800 and P-IV 2.6 Ghz @ FSB 800.

As for the ram, check on the DDR Ram @ 400Mhz pricing.

My view on computer purchases is "If you are going to be spending a lot of money, it does not hurt to spend a few dollars more to get the most out of it"


Main Rig - AMD FX-8350x8 4.0Ghz CPU, 4x 8Gb (32Gb) DDR3 Ram, Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, GeForce GT 970 4Gb, 1x 256Gb SSD\8Tb (3+2+2+1) SATA HDD, DVDRW, SB X-Fi, Win 10 (64-bit)
Asus N61JV-JX231V - Intel Core i5 3437u (1.9 - 2.4 GHz), 12GB, 640GB, 16" Display, nVidia 325M 1Gb, DVD-RW, Win 10 (64-bit)

very true, although newegg does not have the 2.6 in stock at the moment, however the price difference would be $10. i guess ill check up on the DDR 400 as well.
