Ok I just got my Asus P5WD2 motherboard, P4 630 Cpu, and 2GB of Ballistixs PC2-6400. I overclocked it to 3.7Ghz 14 X 266. I have a chance to get a 3.4EE Gallatin Core for a really good price. Do you think it would be worth it to upgrade to that chip? I will only want to run it to 3.6 -3.8GHz.

I am only going to keep this system for about 6mo. I upgrade all the time. This cpu just sounds great. As long as it runs as fast as this chip or a little faster, I will be happy.

I would keep the chip you've got.

The Gallatin (correct me if I'm wrong) doesn't have IA-32e.

Yeah, it's an extension of the Northwood core (sort of) which didnt have the EM64T support. I think the Gallatins are faster clock for clock, however.

I don't know what to do. I don't want to downgrade, will it at least be just as fast? Thats all I am asking? Thanks guys.
