new computer bit a commin' commin'

Just placed an order for

1 x OCZ Premier 512MB DDR400 PC3200 CL 2.5-3-3-7 With Heatspreader
and
1 x AMD Athlon XP3200+ 400mhz FSB 512 L2 Cache Barton CPU - OEM

yay \o/. Finally I will have a pc that actually uses 400mhz memory instead of crappy 266. Damn my Xp2100+ for having crap fsb speed. 1 gig of 400mhz memory and a faster processor. I shall be knocking back SETI units pretty quick now I hope.

Does your motherboard support it?

Is your XP2100+ a thoroughbred b/tbred-a or palomino? If it's a t-bred b and it's not multiplier locked you could probably overclock it to 200x11 (same as a 3200+) and have 95% of the performance.

It's a palomino and I've already tried unlocking it. But given how crap palominos are for overclocking I doubt I'll get 300MHz out of it. My motherboard does support it - it's an Abit NFS-7S.

I have that same processor right now and it kicks ass. Almost worth the 300 bucks worth of crap I fried before I managed to get it right.
