I remember that speed. I even had 2.4ghz and 533. loooong time runner, and still so I presume. It could possibly run forever.
I liked it enough to also go prescott, HT 3.4ghz, 3gb ram, dual channel memory..and two drives twinned. Classic and still new... even the agp still goes where I want with the ati 2600 pro. (I simply encode my own mpeg2)..the prescott is now at 22000 hours, and I am here with it. they are a good machine even today, right now.
EDIT: I do not know if you were informed, but windows xp basic or vista basic is a pile of crap with the prescott. it treats it like a little cpu. I installed vista premium full clean install and met a whole new world. The ram use is quibble talk, just get more.
wn2k pro is also a great one.
