Topic: Fsb 533 & 800?

    Fsb 533 & 800?


    I have the old P4/ 3.03GHz (3GB RAM) with FSB 533 running both Nuendo & Gigastudio.

    I am tempted to upgrade the processor to FSB 800, but is it worth tho?

    How much different will it be?

    not worth it! even if your motherboard supports 800 fsb.

    your better off going for at least a dual core pentium D
    preferably the newer core 2.
    of course you will have tobuy a new mobo and ram

    I agree. The improved performance for the 800 MHz FSB is very, very slight.

    If you upgrade, skip the Pentium D. The D became obsolete the day the Core 2 Duos shipped. The new line gives much more performance for the dollar, and runs much cooler.

    My son bought a Core 2 Duo chip for $185, and the Asus P5N SLI for $120, and the new machine absolutely rocks, while running cool. As a longtime AMD fan, the Core 2 Duos have finally made me an Intel convert - until AMD leapfrogs them anyway...

    How about the RAM?
    I have 3GB RAM right now & my mother board support up to 4GB RAM.
    Will the additional 1GB RAM makes a big different?
    FYI, I use Nuendo2 & Gigastudio on the same machine.

    The extra RAM won't do a thing for GS. You probably don't need any more for Nuendo, but I guess it depends on your usage.

    If you are running samples within Nuendo as well as outside of (in GS) then the extra RAM might help performance a little bit. In terms of sample loading it makes about 100MB difference.
