    ok, thanks for all your input guys. I think i will spend the extra $$ for the mobo. I want to overclock in the future, and if i go cheap i may run into problems and i don't want that =P
    Thanks for all the suggestions !

    Just wanted to clearify

    Who ever said that the xp 3000+ runs at a 400mhz fsb is wrong...it is still at 333....The only athlon that runs at 400mhz is the 3200+ barton.....And Vehementi there is no defending mindless knowledge.....but if anyone has the intelect to get into their bios overclocking is as easy as 123 now a days.....The Abit nf7-s for instance.....The first selection in the overclocking chapter in the bios is cpu choice..... for instance if you are running a 2500 it will say "2500 or 3200" select 3200 reboot and there you have it LoL....it runs as a 3200 at stock voltage ect....of course if you have memory that is worth a hill o beans, ps also.....but keeping it cool is another art in itself......that is usualy where most newbie's fail.....I am a newbie at most on here but not a newbie in the sceme of things

    When you're looking for a 3000+, just look at the ID string & see if it ends with E. It might not be easy to know the FSB when you're buying from a website though. They don't always have accurate or up-to-date info on the product page.

    this is what i think,,the P4 is 800mhz FSB but its internal,,133 external. The AMD has a 400mhz internal FSB,but the External FSB is 233 and up. If im wrong correct me, but if im rite,,do the math. External FSB is what matters.
