Is this a good deal? Would that pup work in my 865 and/or 875 chipset?

I'll pull the trigger if the consensus is yes.

Yup, it should work in a 865/875 mobo.. <i>might</i> need a BIOS update, but probably not.

Personally I'd pay the extra $4 for the northwood 3.0C chip, just because it runs cooler so comes with a noticeably quieter Fan, plus of course will lead to lower case temperatures...

Well, Actually I'd buy the 2.6 or 2.8 and overclock it, but that's just me :smile: ... But given the choice between the 3.0E and 3.0C I'd take the C.

If you already have an 865/875 mobo, what chip are you running now? Upgrading from any of the P4c chips would not yield much.

I know you are stuck with Intel, too bad, get the P4c. My post was directed to phial. The A64 3200+ is $208. I would sell the board, and get that instead, but I already have.
