I am running a Gigabyte 7NNXP Nforce2 mobo. According to Gigabytes site. After installing the lastest bios update. I can use a Sempron up to the 3k model. Here's the tricky part to me and only cause I had probs on my previous mobo.
Since I'm using the PCB version 1.0 and M/B version 1.0. Would that make it so that I couldn't use a sempron.http://www.giga-byte.com/Mothe...uppo...st_GA-7NNXP.htm
Now let me give an example: Last mobo ASUS A7V333 PCB Ver2.0 can run an AMD Athalon 3k with the latest bios. However, since the model I had is 1.0 even with the latest bios it could never run the barton cores.
So now the Gigabyte 7NNXP is on the Nforce2 Ultra's. I've also had the unlucky fortune of gettng a fake xp3200, so I am thinking for goin with a Sempron 2800 or 3k to get to 2Ghz.
So what I'm lookin for here is someone with a close setup to main who's doin this.
Well you know the mobo, I am running 1Gb of RAM PC2700 and all the latest drivers.
