    I want to get a new chip since my wife mobo just died. I currently have a palamino in my system and want to get a Thoroughbred now.
    They have the 1700+ for $45 or the 1800+ for $56. Which would be a better buy?
    I would rather get the 1800+ even if it costs more just for overclocking it to a 2500+. Plus they have the option to get a DMT3C with the 1800+, isn't that the better ocer?

    OR a 2400+ for $78. That is really what I would like to get, I just don't know the OCablility of it.

    Just wondering if you guys can help.

    Also need to get her a new mobo. So I figured a A7V266-vm would do good for $60, unless anybody has a better buy they know of.

    Thanks for your help, I am hoping to order this stuff tonight or tomorrow. Along with my last stuff to finish up my system below.

    Its impossible for newegg to give you the chip codes. From most of the reviews people are getting the better models. Although I did read a few that said they got the other models that don't OC as well.
    Hit and miss I am sure.
    I think I will stick with the 2400+ since it isn't that much more. Unless I hear it isn't worth the extra $20 or so $.

    Well, though cvertain steppings etc are better for Ocing ALOT of luck is involved, but for you, 1700+ Tbred "b" are known to have the best OC ability of all AMD chips.

    ASUS' VM motherboards don't overclock (VM = Value Motherboard in my books), well the ones that I've handled don't anyway but the VX models do.

    The MOBO is for my wife computer that I am going to put back in her 1600+ palamino or my 1800+ pali. So I am not worried about OC ing it. It had a ECS K7S5A in it prior. It burnt up the other day, right after the HDD died. So I have a 15gig, that they RMAed after about 35 months of having it, so I was happy.
    I just need a board, nothing fancy. And I use Asus primarily.

    The chip 2400+/thoroughbred is going to go in my A7 V 8X that I currently have running and OCed with the 1800+ pali.
    I want the thoroughbred to get a better chip in there. Money isn't really an issue.

    The A7N8X/Barton 2500+ listed below is my newest system which is still being built.

    After it is all said and done I will have an extra chip. 1600+ pali.

    Just wondering how that 2400+ OC's really, compared to the 1800+

    The 2400+ = $78
