    You are spending way too much. You can get a mobo + Barton 3200 + 512mb
    DDRAM PC3200 + 400watt PSU for less than 500.00

    Why aren't you buying a Athlon64 3000+ and a MSI K8N ?????

    That is Aussie dollars :)

    And the system i was thinking of was :

    Abit NF7,AN7 ect.
    1024 Geil Ram 3200
    Radeon 9800 Pro 128 meg
    Hard disk 120 Gig SATA.
    CPu BArton 3200.

    I think that all adds up to 1265 bucks give or take a few bucks :)

    A 3200+ is about $168US. A 2500+ is about $61US. I'd wager that almost all
    2500+ will run at 3200+ speeds. The cpu's have the same multiplier (11).
    Set to 200Mhz FSB, they run t the same speed. Now if you want to pay
    almost 3 times as much for the 3200+, well, it's your money. AMd will love
    you too.:-)
    But, if you are going to spend that much money for a CPU, I'd suggest you
    spend it on an Athlon 64 3000+, which is faster than the 3200+ XP even in
    32bit mode. A good cheap MB is the Jetway S755MAX (about $85US). And in
    case you didn't know it, the Athlon XP will be changing to the same socket
    as the Athlon 64 sometime this year. There may already be on the market.
    One thing is for sure. Socket A is on it's last legs.

    Well, I don't agree with the MB, but the 64 3000+ is right on. It's a lot
    faster than the Barton 3200+ and not a lot more money wise. My XP system
    is gathering dust as my spare.

    What can you do now with your Xp 64 bit that you could not do with you
    old XP system ?

    Other than run it faster, I can also run 64bit, and have. I'm also able to
    upgrade it to a faster cpu if I chose to. I don't think you'll get that
    option with socket A.

    I don't know about him, but 64 bit Linux is a screamer on Opterons...

    /snip/

    Mine won't. running an MSI KT6V-LSR, Thermaltake Volcano 11+, 640 megs
    pc3200. radeon pro 9700 128, WD 40gig ata100

    tried raising the voltage, different ram etc. won't run over 186mhz fsb.
    posts, but windows won't load, reboots right after post. tried 200 fsb. does
    the same thing.

    One can always wait for 'the next better thing'. Dive in now if you
    have the cake I say.

    a 3200+ probably wouldnt hit the mark then either to be honest..
    sounds like ram/nb issues to me
    dont worry tho, I cant run mine with a passive heatsink.. even tho the ondie
    temp says about 65 when it shuts off (think they monitor for thermal
    shifts?)

    At 186MHz FSB the PCI bus is a little over 37MHz, and AGP is close to
    75MHz. that could be the problem. The higher you go with the FSB the
    higher the pci/agp buses go til you start using a 6 divider that is normal
    for the 200MHz setting. that could be the problem, or it might be your
    ram or ram timings, or even your PSU. Or it could be the CPU won't do
    2200MHz, but not likely. Most can be pushed up close to 2400MHz with
    proper components and settings. But I did say almost all just to cma.
