    Don't bother wasting all that money on a 3200+..

    Turn your 2800+ up a bit, 200x11 (2200mhz) for starters, and it will be the same thing. The 2800 is where it starts getting good, I would keep what you have.

    BTW it can go a lot farther than that, you will just have to see how much your board will allow.

    Yeah dude the 2800 is fine, and to tell you the truth you won't see that much of a differance with the 3200, although we all know it is most certainly better. Just overclock if you want. You shouldn't even have to as your processor is very good. If you are that rich just buy a lot of good CD's, or DVD's, or pr0n, or something that will give you some good use :D

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    3200 speed would be 200x11. 200x10 is only 2ghz.

    Yes it does...the settings for FSB are in your BIOS.

    i was wondering the same thing?? so you can put the 3200 in but you all are saying to just overclock the 2800.. well i guess my next question is how do you over clock?? and good sites that will walk you thru it?? also on the hp site it says my fsb is 333/400.. but i was told it was 233/333.. so what exactly is it??anyone know?? thanks
