The "I'm still on 478 and am too poor to upgrade" thread - Page 6

post #51 of 79
Just thought I'd quickly post back one last time to correct my previous post. Apparently, x64 versions of Vista Premium are limited to 16GB or RAM whilst Business and Ultimate versions allow for a maximum of 128GB.

Anyway, I don't think anyone in this thread could be a bigger Pentium 4 whore than me though. Over the past years I've owned the following;

pga423 Pentium 4 Willamette 1.5GHz @ stock
180nm 256KB L2 FSB400

pga478 Pentium 4 Northwood 2.0Ghz @ 2.4Ghz
130nm 512KB L2 FSB400

pga478 Pentium 4 "Northwood B 2.53Ghz @ 2.8Ghz
130nm 512KB L2 FSB533

pga478 Pentium 4 Northwood B 2.66Ghz @ 3.1Ghz
130nm 512KB L2 FSB533

pga478 Pentium 4 Prescott 3.2Ghz @ 3.6Ghz
90nm 1MB L2 FSB800 HT

LGA775 Pentium 4 650 (Prescott 3.4Ghz) @ 4.0Ghz
90nm 2MB L2 FSB800 HT

Hehe, yeah that would be me alright. At the time I got my system, it was a MAJOR upgrade. I was running a P3 800MHz.
But my pc budget was and still is non-existant, so I had to go cheap. Thus the Dragon was born. I bought it pretty much one piece at a time as I got the money. Then I modded an old pc case I had been given so that it would at least look like a new kick butt pc. (Link to my mod process in my sig)
Man, I was so happy with it. I still really like it, but I am wondering if I am really getting everything I can out of it. It is only overclocked about 12% (3.2GHz -> 3.56GHz). And my 3DMark scores aren't that great... ~6600.

Anyway, I am a member of the Socket 478 Club.
