    I have 512mb DDR333 (Probably soon to be 1Gb DDR333).
    I will upgrade my video card to a 9700 Pro (or AIW 9700 Pro).
    My mobo supports Barton CPU's and the 333Mhz FSB.
    If I were to upgrade my CPU from an 1800+ (Palomino) to a 2500+ (Barton), what kind of performance increase should I see from the CPU upgrade ?

    maybe 35%+- in synthetic benchmarks. real world will appear to be a little zippier. i would over clock the 1800 and save $$. it would appear to be the same speed. not many games or apps will benefit from the speed differential.

    I just went from a 1.4 Ghtz T-Bird (.18 micron) to a 2.0 Ghtz T-Bred (2400+) (.13 micron) (all 266 fsb)

    I saw a 32% increase in processor only benchmarks, and I would say you will see a 15-25% increase.

    I was dissapointed, I was expecting more.

    So, is it worth it... maybe... I had an immediate use for my old processor and so I had a need to buy a new on anyways. In that light, it was worth it.

    Maybe I'll wait until the 3000+ drops in price.

    I upgraded from athlon 1.4 to barton xp2500+
    It is really easy to oc to xp3200 if u have a good
    motherboard. From the xp3200 specs, there was a
    big difference in real performance, not only benchmarks.

    I would actually just overclock the 1800 to 2500+ speeds (2060 MHz for T-Bred, 133*15.5) I used thisand buy the 9700 righ now to see the biggest proformance increase
    <font color=orange>AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Barton (166*11=1883MHz) -|- Asus A7N8X Deluxe Rev2.0 -|- Corsair XMS PC3200 512 MB RAM 2T-3-3-6 @DDR333 -|- Leadtek A250 TD GF4 TI 4400 300/630 -|- 40 Gig Quntaum Fireball AP+ -|- 52x Samsung CD-ROM Drive -|- SB Live Digital 5.1 -|- Antec SG case w/350 Watt Power-Up PSU</font>

    Now why did ya have to do that for when the 1800 T'bred I have is easily runnin' 12 x 166MHz for 2GHz (the extra FSB steppin' is better value)? :confused:

    Wiggo,

    Here is my system info:

    A7V8X Bios ver. 1014
    1800+
    2x256mg Pc2700
    60 gig WD
    40 gig Maxtor
    Geforce 4 Ti4200

    I am wondering what the best setting would be to overclock it.
    I have a new system coming and want to mess around with this one.
    I also have an overclocking book coming so I will ask less and read more!

    Just wondering if you can give me some stable setting to start out with.

    Thanks,
    Chez

    Cool ass link, I am going to try it out now!!!
