I know this is a stupid place to post it...But you guys generally have the know how in all area's.

What exactly is the difference between the old 3200+ 400FSB and the 3200+ 200FSB? Which one wud i b best off getting for my mate?! He doesnt want to do the leep 2 64Bit yet.

And he also is buying a 6800GT but wants it @ stock speeds...So i was wondering (Money no object) what GT shud he get? I personally wud go for the BFGTech one but he wants to see what u guys think.

Cheers (xmassign)

amd 3200+ i am assuming you mean the ones with barton core. There is no difference then because there is only one version of Athlon XP 3200+. Thats a 400MHz(DDR) FSB version.

If you are talking about athlon64 3200+ then thats a K8 cpu with memory controller ondie with 64 bit extensions. There is no fsb per say rather a a reference HT clock IIRC.

Better off with Athlon64 3200+.

In the US, you are better off with BFG or eVGA. BFG offer good warranty etc but with eVGA you are entitled to their Step Up program. Where should you want to trade you card you bought now, you can pay the difference in price for the new one when thatc omes out etc. (I think)
