    Couldn't agree more there buddy... I had more problems with Nvidia drivers, than i've had with ATI's(i.e. None)...

    ..but why the 400fsb 2.4?:confused: 533 is the same price, and you will not get very much overclocking outta that 400!

    Probably its for the 1.8 P4 Vaio system in his profile that only supports 400fsb P4s :D

    Erm, what can I say, I was wrong:(; my apologies. Nevertheless, I am still going to get a later release of the GeForce FX (if they release any) as there is likely to be a great performance increase as there was between the GF4 TI4200 and 4600. If they don't release any, I will have to crossover to ATi's 9800.

    Actually got to change my sig..lol

    i got a new mobo and such a p4s533 - with pc-2100 - which i will change to pc-3500 (for ever more leeway on memory fsb speeds)

    the reason to get a 400mhz FSB CPU is because the mobo support's 533 - so that gives me an extra 133mhz to work with on over clocking.

    it was much like the PIII 100fsb chips and the 133fsb chips.

    the 100' over clock MUCH futher beacuse there was more headroom on the FSB speed - where as the 133 - was already maxing out the CPU / memory and mother board.

    So what you would do is get a cpu that was 100fsb - and a mobo and memory that was 133fsb - which gave u that 33mhz extra to work with with out worrying about ruining your mobo or memory.

    it is the same case with P4's :) i will have that extra 133mhz FSB to work with on my system and likely get more! over clocking out of my cpu, then i would if it was a 533 FSB - as long as it is a northwood, or what evere core.

    :D

    Been reading up on this religiously, some suggest i get a 2.0a chip as many have gotten that up to 3ghz mark with water cooling, which is what i am looking into.

    Let me get this straight... where is this spare coming from? Does your board run with the memory and PCI speeds locked? Do you simply mean that if you get the 400fsb P4 and run it at 533 you will get it default multiplier x the increased fsb for a higher overclock or what?

    ^^^

    think they are locked on this board, this is something else i was reading up on today.

    now right now, with my p4 1.8 williamette - i got it @ 111 /37 - running @ 2.020mhz

    but there is the option for 133/33 - i could unlock the cpu by pulling off one of the pins and making it a 133fsb instead of 100, but don't want to do that.


    i dunno - i still got alot of reading top do before i buy the cpu :)

    as well, - i have no pci cards in this comp - so don't have to worry about that part as much - as i don't need any - only one is my AGP card.

    I am trying otbget my head room form the memory and motherboard.

    mainly instead of getting pc-2100 - get pc-3500 which will be able to handle the faster FSB as opposed to pc-2100 and won't strain the memory as much as it would if it was pc -2100 or if i had a 133(4x) cpu as opposed to a 100()4x) cpu.

    if that makes sense...?

    if not, please help!>.lol

    Hey Tim,

    Just curious as I just bought a Ti4200.
    What are your specs and 3D scores?

    HerbsPirate, my specs are on my profile, and my best score for 3DMARK03 was 1831. And a not very high 11530 for 3DMARK2001SE. Might I ask what you got?
