Asus A7V333 best processor

Apr 25, 2004
  1. Sorry to be so thick,
    but I have searched the obvious but cannot find the answer,

    I have a Asus A7V333 mobo 1gig ddram but only a 1.7tbird(2.1I think)

    I am doing video work and have about 310gig of hard drive space but everything is so slow.

    What I need to know is what is the fastest processor I can get and what difference will it make.

    Thanks Art

    That is why most manufacturors have put up a CPU Support Page.

    If your board is a Revision 1.01, you can go all the way to 2600+ Thoroughbred ( the version with a 133FSB running at 2133mhz ).

    If your board is a revision 2.0, you can use a 3000+ ( Barton core / 2167mhz / 166FSB ) if the board is using the BIOS 1016 & you have PC2700 Ram at least.

    As for the performance increase, you'd have to look at the performance of such a chip on an nForce2 board. It might be a little bit slower ( the kt333/kt400 chipset is a bit slower then the nForce2 ) but not by too much.

    I know that the search engines are now much more money driven and what we want is furthur down the list.
