    I have a P4 2.4B 253FSB running on a MSI 845E Max2 M/B and a P4 2.0 400FSB running on a MSI 845 Ultra M/B and have had no problems with either setup.

    Stick with the CPU you like best, whether it's an Intel or AMD.

    With the 533FSB whats a good buy?? SIS 645DX, Intel 845E/G or the VIA one??
    They are pretty widely available. Ive seen them for sale at beecom (merrylands) and zone computing (St. Leanords) Zone also sells PC1066RDRam. Funny thing is the P4 with 533mhz bus costs the same as with 400mhz bus.

    Also the person who mentioned they would want to get a VIA chipset for a P4, the VIA chipsets are hardly any better than the SiS chipsets. The intel chipsets (845D/G/E, 850) are easily the best choice for the P4. that is to say intel CHIPSET NOT intel MOTHERBOARD

    Only up to in benchmarks that rely heavily on SSE2 optimisations though the real figure would be closer to the 8-10% mark overall but there are still some benches that it misses out on. :smokin:

    :cool: Be patient. (NOT LIKE I AM HOWEVER) As soon as the P4 2.8's come out, the 2.53's will plummet in price. :)

    I have been happy with a SIS 645 chipset (Gigabyte) mb, which I chose for the DDR 333 support. My P4 1.6a overclocks easily >2.0 without significant rise in temp and remains rock stable. The new SIS 648 is also supposed to be very promising, but time will tell. I agree that VIA chipsets are great, but the new SIS chipsets are very competitive.
    I also have an Intel mb with 845G chipset which is very stable, but cannot overclock. I do notrecommend the on-board video with the i845G. It's much better performance with a AGP 4x card. If you want a stable business machine, Intel mb is very reliable.

    I am hoping that the newest AMD's really pummel Intel's best & maybe Intel will lower all of it's prices.

    The P4 2.53 is ridiculous in price, something like $1300aud. I bought my whole system for less than that. Also, the althon XP 1800+ matches and sometimes beats the P4 2.0GHZ in some benchmarks, even though its clocked at 1.53GHZ.

    I believe that most people who buy them have zero need for that speed.
