Hi.
I can buy a XP3000 400fsb for about $150, but a XP2600 333fsb for about $80.
In this case, is it possible to OC the XP2600 to match the XP3000 400mhz
speed and thereby save about $75??? Both CPU are 2.1ghz.
Thank you for your time.

I'm running my XP2500+ at 413MHz x 11 instead of 333MHz x 11.
An XP3200+ is 400MHz x 11

I've not done anything particularly clever.

There's plenty of room in the 2500+ for overclocking - personally, I'd buy a
2500+ and see what you can push the FSB too (just don't skimp on the
memory - I'm tempted to go wild and buy some DDR533)

I think he's talking about a Tbred 2600 / 166FSB vs a Barton 3000 / 200FSB.
This Barton has a 10.5 CPU multiplier for a 2.1Ghz true clock. The Tbred
2600 has a 2.083Ghz true clock. The Tbred will likely have more headroom for
overclocking via the FSB, but it has only 1/2 the L2 cache. With the Barton,
you'll need PC3500 or higher RAM for overclocking. Kind of a tossup. I'd
just get a Barton 2500 and run it at 200 FSB to get 3200+ performance.

With the Barton 3000 / 200FSB, if u were to push the FSB to 215 can the
multiplier be push to 11 or 11.5?

Thank you all very much for your help. I will go get a Barton2500 for only
$70.

Get a 2500 mobile the multiplier is unlocked only $10-$30 more expensive.

Mobile processors are simply processors that have added features for
laptop/notebook computers. This is usually some form of power saving
feature. In the case the the Athlon, I believe the feature is called
PowerNow. The mobile processors will work in most desktop motherboards.

Oh ok. The CPU will go in a FIC AU13 MOBO.
Thanks.

So, i should get pretty good OC results if i get a XP2500+ 333FSB and 512 MB
PC3200 in my FIC AU13 MOBO and play around with it a little?
Thank you all very much.
