NF2 GF4MX- Optimal processor

I could go searching for the answer for this but figured finding scaling results for the nforce2 video would be kinda difficult.

<b>Would a athlon 1700+ hold back the onboard GF4MX of an nforce2?

I would like to max out the GF4MX, not the processor.</b>
That is with dual channel DDR400 at the strictest timings.

I'm going to build a 3rd system with these goodies
Leadtek Nforce2 w/builtin LAN/SoundStorm/GF4MX
Athlon 1700+ (palomino)
2x256 DDR 400 whatever brand has good timings
Antec LanBoy case/psu
17" monitor

Leaving my main system (in the sig) with a new 2500+ (o/cing to 2.2ghz+), a new sony 21" and a GF FX5600 Ultra rev.2 (if I can ever find one).

My GF3 will probably go in my disgraceful willamette P4 1.5ghz system.
*crowd boos and jeers*

This is all for my newfound EQ addiction and hopefully three boxing in WoW in 2004. :wink:

Thanks in advance guys!

  1. I would say no..the Athlon XP1700+ should NOT hold back the GF4MX
  2. Thanks, I guessed that but wanted to be sure
    :smile:

    I figured the ram I put in for the dual ddr would make a much larger difference than the processor..
    and i want a new 2500+ in my main system :tongue:
