looking for more of what?
the new lga775 intel boards even allow a little overclocking.
last time I checked the only board with more, reall, was the Asus P5AD2 premium and I went through about 10 of em -- each one had something on it that didn't work properly.
first of all, HyperX is the bitch of high-performance memory. XMS is much better. OCZ is another good one.
Secondly, HyperX almost never detects proper settings via SPD, so you should go into BIOS and check them over. If they're wrong, then set them manually.
i have used a device in the past that you plug into your computer, then run a Cat5 cable from one device to the other, and you can plug the other into your monitor/tv. You can run several hundred feet w/o signal loss.
Well, I'd recommend a genuine intel board over Asus, but the P4P800 SE Deluxe is a good asus board.
Intel does have an entry-level server (glorified desktop board) that features the 875 chipset and onboard video.
you can't beat intel-brand boards, imho.
for s478, you can get the D865PERLL, retail. If you can find it within your price, the D875PBZLK is awsome. Also look at the D915GAGL and G915PCYL in that range.
Honestly, I think you're better off with a AMD Athlon 64 2800+ s754 and an MSI K8T Neo.
But if you must go with s462, then I would not recommend abit. Abit makes some great boards, but they're more picky than msi and asus... So if you're not prepared to mess with it a lot, I'd just rather...
okay, as stated in my first post, I'm using a P4 550 and D915PBLL because I got both for only $199 total.... This requires that I use PCIe16.
Also, my budget is $200 -- or actually my budget is less, but I'm willing to stretch it to $200 to include the X700, if required.
So which of those...
Okay, Intel ran a deal where you could get a P4 550 (3.4GHz HT), a D915PBLL, and WinXP Pro for $199. That's a helluva deal considering the chip retails for just under $300, alone.
Soooooo, now I need a new video card. I was considering the 256MB 6600, 128MB 6600GT, and the 256MB X700...
why do you call the via 4-in-1 "bizzarro"?
You do realize that it's just an Installshield pacakge for your chipset drivers, right? Intel calls it their "INF Update". nVidia calls it their "Unified" drivers.
Hyperthreading cannot be considered as "missing" from the AMD platform.
HT was created to compensate for the problems created by intels long pipe design.... the amd chips do not follow that concept in any way, and thus do not require HT.
HT is a band aid.
Socket 939 is the way to go.
re-read my statement.... I say that it will run hotter than a comprable chip. I also say a prescott (p4) runs much hotter than a northwood (p4) of the same clock...
I didn't say the cooler wouldn't work, but that it may not work.
very true... the delery is a chopped down prescott -- and thus runs hotter than previous chips. A 3.0C cooler may or may not be sufficient.... Remember, a prescott will run much hotter than a comprably-equiped northwood...
I just got my first digital video camera. It's a Panasonic PV-GS120 mini-dv cam. The bundled software is really really bad, and Windows Movie Maker is more like a childs toy.
What are some good editing packages to look at purchasing? As this is a hobby for personal use, I cannot put out...
