quick question about CPU Bus /socket/compatibility

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
in cpu-z, under 'cpu', it says 'Rated FSB 531.7Hz'.
so, this means my cpu's bus is 533Mhz? to upgrade this cpu, i can only use a cpu that has that same bus of 533,
is that right? it's a pentium 4 2.4GHz Socket 478. i'm looking at replacing it with this, faster and twice the
cache for $16:

from amazon - Intel Pentium 4 2.8AGHz 533MHz 1MB Socket 478 CPU

will this work, or is there something i'm missing?

and probably a dumb question, but what does the 'A' mean (as in 2.8AGHz)?

tia for any responses. sorry about the newb question.

I think it should work as long as its the same socket. Check your mobo user manual to be sure on compatibility.
