    Im in Sydney and havent seen a single 533FSB P4 for sale yet....has anyone else?

    With the 533FSB whats a good buy?? SIS 645DX, Intel 845E/G or the VIA one??

    I dont take much notice to what intel release these days, but I think TT reviewed the Intel 845E/G. Personally- Id go with the VIA chipsetted mobo, and steer well clear of the SiS one- they are useless.

    I'd also wait it out and see what AMD come up with at the end of the year, but if youre desperate for an upgrade, the 533mhz P4 will get you there.
    Albeit- expensivly.

    Whats wrong with the SiS ones??
    From what I've read they performance seems on par with the rest and seems to be stable.
    Im not saying u are wrong Bahamut Zero.....just wondering why they should be avoided because it is quite cheap.

    My hardware supplier has advised me to steer clear of the (Epox) SIS P4 mainboards - appearantly they've had an excess amount of RMA's with them.
    they even offered to swallow the cost of switching SIS boards to i845D boards on all existing orders that hadn't shipped.

    ...that was about 6 wks. ago...maybe SIS/Epox have solved the problem since then :confused:

    I'm with you all the way on that one BZ :thumb:

    Preferably the P4X333... from the reviews I've read that is an AWESOME chipset to have... makes my P4X266 look old :(

    Maybe it was just the crap ECS mobo's fault- but their SiS chipped mobos perform absolutley ****house. (the SIS 645DX and the model before it)

    I havnt used any other brand mobo with the SiS chipset for P4 use, and I doubt I will. All their chipsets are pretty low-grade imo.
    But thats just me of course. You should really fully research it before making any final decisions.

    Hi,

    I'm in Adelaide and just got the Intel P4 2.26Ghz 533FSB for about A$480. Teamed it up with Epox EP-4G4A+ with Intel i845G and seems a really nice and stable setup, I've been using Epox MB's for years and never had a problem with them.

    Cheerz :) :D ;)

    Got my Iwill P4D yesterday, and while it's based on the i845D, the indications of it being stable are excellent. I believe they've got an i845G board coming out, which from my initial impressions of the P4D, should be a winner.
