The 650 is a 100MHz FSB and the 733 a 133?

Prolly better off with the 650.

Of course, if you gave more details then you'd likely get a more complete
answer.

Unlikely. A PIII 733 will have a 133FSB. I've had a number of the EB series
and found it hard to push the FSB over 150 with any degree of stability even
with a decent board. The last and best EB unit I had was a PIII 1000EB that
ran at 1140Mhz/ 152FSB on air with vcore up 10%. . Assuming you can get it
to run at 150FSB without issues, that's 825Mhz. The PIII 650 you have is
running at 133FSB for 868Mhz. I think the performance difference will be
tiny.....what m/b are you using and which type of PIII?

Will your 650 not go a bit higher? Those were good overclocking chips.
I ran a 650@936, on stock voltage(!), for about three years before I
upgraded. It would easily have gone higher, but my PC133 memory kept
crapping out if I tried any more.... and I didn't want to start messing
around with overvolting CPU and memory as a 44% overclock was enough for
me

As others have said, the 733 is unlikely to overclock as much as the
650. In reality, the 733 is really just a overclocked P3-550 running
with a 133Mhz FSB instead of 100MHz.

Thanks, Guys

I think I maxxed out the 650 with my old ABit BH-6 1.0 board (pc 100 ram
512). But what a great workhorse it's been!
