Prescott And Northwood?

Recommended Posts

Guest FxXP
Socket 478 /w PCI Express? You have got to show me this. The i865 and i875 are not compatible with PCI-E technology.

Edit: I found one... had to be Albatron. Go figure. Edited by FxXP

Depends on what you want to spend. If you want to save some money get like a 2.8 Northwood, that will cost you around $150. Then in a year or two you can grab a Prescott.

Dont count on it....
478 has been around a while compared to some of the other chipcores. Im sure you will still be able to buy 478 chips and boards... But you can forget about intel developing anything new with that chip

don't go with a pressy unless you KNOW you are going to get good cooling, i.e. xp-90, xp-120 or water cooling...if you keep that sucker cold, it can clock extremely HIGH! my suggestion, a 2.8prescott or a 3.0c northy.

i would say grab an 3.2 Northwood, one with 800 FSB and 1 Meg cache, make SURE it has HT (myper threading) as hyperthreading makes it like you got 2 processors, its just a way to split the load. presscotts are to overpriced, and the highend ones produce tremendouse heat. if you cool the crap out of the northwood you will be able to OC it ALOT.
