Athlon XP 3000+ 333FSB vs 400FSB

Ok...

I am going to get an Athlon XP 3000+ proc. no matter what, but I was wondering what the major difference between a 333mhz fsb and a 400 mhz one. Would there be a major difference or will they be about the same in performance ?


Thanks.

  2. I'm pretty sure that there is no 400MHz version of the 3000+ (unless you overclock), I think only the 3200+ is 400MHz FSB. Get a 2500+ Barton and overclock, save yourself some money.

    The only thing that i truly know...

    is that i know nothing at all.
  3. ya there is a 400mhz version...

    Which would you recommend? the 333mhz or 400 ?

  4. Get the 2500xp like the man said and run it at 400MHz. If my 2400xp can do it then I`m sure it will too.

    Oh yes. There is a 400Mhz FSB AMD Athlon XP 3000+. I was using one until it died recently due to power surge - damn my SMPS.
    I would suggest a 400MHz one. Also check the speeds on Motherboard. A DDR1 400Mhz RAM, 400MHz FSB Mainboard will run perfectly(like Asus a8mvx)

    Cheers.
  6. The difference would be marginal, but the 400FSB would be a *little* faster if your board supports it.
