XP END OF THE LINE…What is the HIGHEST PERFORMING CHIPSET?
I’ve read articles at www.tomshardwareguide.com
and am more confused than ever to take advantage of the price drops in AMD’s XP processors. Socket A VIA KT400, 600 & KT880?
With comments about the KT600 single Ram Modules, being increased in performance against the Dual Ram of previous chipsets, and dual ram being limited to FSB; as well as running 2 modules of 400mhz ram side by side creating prob’s; then the release of the KT880 back to dual ram ect, I have no idea any longer on what is the best chipset to finalize a system for the XP processors?
Sure I have to consider the extras in a board like serial connectors for hard drives and the like, not to mention this or that factor always seemingly overriding the latest tech, ect ect.
Essentially, I am looking to get the most performance possible out of the xp processors while all the glitches can be worked out of the 64bit series and its following chipset, software, ect.
Seriously; what would you guys recommend for the best platform, for an end of era XP processors and what considerations would you give to RAM, or any other config issues that should be addressed.
I do apologize if I have made no sense. I used to think I knew something about computer hardware, but now looking back over the last 18months; its become very overwhelming when considering what goes with what to get the most out of ones system.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated
