Default What can this hold?

I recently ordered a new computer, and the motherboard it comes with is: Elitegroup P4VMM2+V7.1 Socket 478

I was just wondering what is the max processor it will hold in Pentium 4.. also, what would that processor cost in Canadian money?

You are going to be safe with a processor that can handle up to a 533MHz FSB. I can't find any resources on how fast but...to be safe, go to a site that would bundle this board with a particular processor and then you'll know how fast of a processor this will handle. To be safe, I would not go above 3.0GHz. A 3.0GHz P4 with a 533MHz FSB is going to run you around 320 Canadian.

what makes you say 533? i think thats trying to pull too much out of the Mobo, esp if he buys ram to handle 533 MhZ. The Mobo would be a serious restriction for it correct?
