P4 3 switch to p4 3.4 Extreme Edition ? possible with my original Asus
p4p800 Deluxe [not the E version] with bios 1019.005 ?

Hi i already have a Intel® Pentium® 4 - 3.0C-GHz @ 800Mhz w/ 1Mb (Socket
478) on my original Asus p4p800 Deluxe motherboard and it
runs ok with 1 gb of good dual channel memory and other fast video and hard
drive etc.

I was wondering what kind of @ performance increase % wise would i see if i
replaced the 3.0 cpu with either the Intel® Pentium® 4
3.2C or 3.4C -GHz Extreme Edition @ 800Mhz w/ 2Mb (Socket 478)?

Also, would i need to reinstall windows Xp or not after such a cpu switch?

Thanks Alot

According to Asus' mainboard/CPU compatibility list, the Extreme Edition
CPUs are supported by BIOS 1012 and newer.

http://www.asus.com/support/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx

(This isn't a direct link for the P4P800 deluxe, but it's simple to get
there from this link.)

I don't know what performance boost you might expect from an Extreme Edition
CPU. It would depend on the application, I suppose If you mainly wish to
play Doom3 at a high frame rate, see:

http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=214...

I'm pretty sure that, as another poster remarked, you'd not have to
re-install XP after swapping in an EE CPU.

If the prices at www.newegg.com are representative, the EE CPUs are absurdly
expensive (approx. $1000US).

I recently upgraded from a P4P800 (not a Deluxe) with an A8V Pro and an
Athlon64 3500+ CPU. (The new build re-used everything but the mainboard and
CPU.) A month ago, the upgrade cost $500US. It would be less today. I'm not
an AMD fan or a convert, but I wanted to keep my 6800 GT graphics card, and
the A64 upgrade path seemed likely to be the most satisfactory for the
price. I'm happy with it, so far.

Address scrambled. Replace nkbob with bobkn.

You would NOT have to reinstall XP, as long as you do not change the
motherboard.
