haha Yeah but I'v had some bad memorys with that.


Let's just say had 2 5ths of something and woke up in a hospital

We're definetly way off topic.


I was thinking of just keeping my 2.6 Northy and overclocking that. I heard there was an asus board that was great for overclocking it.

It's a tad bit more in my price range too.

Um, yeah, don't start drinking now. Not because it's illegal (well, ok, because of that too) but because it's not good for your body. Once you're done growing you can screw up your body with alchol all you want LOL

in fact, I think I have one Guiness left in the fridge



Back on topic, i think the board your thinking of is the P4P800-SE IIRC.

Pick your budget



Too bad you missed the sale, newegg was selling the 805s for $104 last week.


If you have more than 1 Optical drive, you'll need a SATA HD though, for either of them.
Lol... I don't think he is planning on paying $225 for a $130 processor...

No need for DDR2-667 with a 533Mhz FSB. Go for DDR2-400 or DDR2-533. For the motherboard get the ASUS P5LD2-VM for $105. Memory: G.SKILL Extreme Series 1GB DDR2-533 for $78.

To tell you the truth, you 3700+ is a fine processor. If you want to go dual core intel, wait for April 24. The 9XX models will be cut in half. You will be able to get a 950 for $300....

Not sure what you meant there. And I think it would be a better idea to just get the full P5LD2 since it's just $14 more. However, would have to get 667 memory as that's all it supports. And the VM only supports 533 or 667. Might not need it for a 533 FSB, but it would not need to be replaced when the CPU gets upgraded.

But I do agree, the best bet is to just wait a bit until at least the first price drop on the 9xx series CPUs,

I was under the impression that he was purchasing the 805. Normally people don't pay more for a motherboard then a processor.

... I had heard that each of those Asus Mobo's recommended earlier had issues with 9xx's to the extent that you had to pay $5 S&H to Asus to get them to send you a new bios thingie to replace. If you didn't do that, it wouldn't post at all...

So, I wonder, has that issue been solved, so that you don't have to mess with all that crap now?

I am looking at the 920 right now, but am hesitent to pay $150 - $200 for a mobo, when I could go X2 and get a good mobo for only $80.

I am looking at something along the lines of a 920D, 2gb of decent ram, either a 7600GT or a 7900GT (prolly get EVGA and do step up), and SATAII HD.

The question, I supposes, is whether to go AMD or INTEL. Are the multipliers locked on the presler cores?

Also, why is the price going to drop on Presler, or 9xx's in general, on April 24th, is that the conroe release date or something?

Well, I don't know what you heard or where. but the P5WD2 series runs the 9xx out of the box, no problems. I haven't tried the P5LD2, but I don't know why it would have issues, it supports the 9xx series according to ASUS website.

Even if it was a BIOS problem, why would you ship it to ASUS to fix? Why not just update the BIOS yourself?

Doesn't make sense.


The multipliers are locked on all curtent Intel CPUs except Engineering Sample CPUs, which you can't really buy outside of eBay. And that's risky IMHO.


The price drop has to do with Conroe, but that is not the release date to the public. The official Conroe public release has not been announced, other than it will be in Q3. Best guess is mid to late July.



Ultimatly, the choice to go AMD or Intel is one only you can make. Personally, I find that by doing your research, and making good parts decisions, the differences in performance are minor and cost is about the same or less. I stick with Intel as that is what I know, and there is no major cost savings or benefit to go AMD. For instance, you could save $100 on a board with AMD, but you're gonna spend about $60 more on the CPU comparing the X2 3800 to the 920, even more after the 920 price drop.
