Will an XP2800 go on A7V333 MoBo (version rev 2.0)?

Discussion in 'Asus' started by Interesting Ian, Apr 25, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    At the moment I have an AMD XP1800 processor and an MSI G4 Ti 4200 (64Mb
    memory) graphics card. I have 768Mb DDR-SDRAM memory.

    What I want to know is whether my MoBo would take an XP2800 processor? I
    was also thinking about getting a ati 9800 pro graphics card. Would they
    both work with my MoBo (A7V333 Rev 2.0), and would it be worth it? I plan
    to play quite a few of the games coming out in the next few months such as
    Half Life 2 and Doom 3 etc.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Asus shows up to a 3000+ Barton for that board, see here,

    I run a Barton 3200+ w/Radeon 9800 Pro 128, fast enough for all of
    todays games, not sure about tomorrow. ;p

  3. Hmmm . .dunno what a Barton is really. Seems I will have to flash my BIOS
    though :-(

    BTW, a 9800 pro should be getting even lower in price over the next couple
    of months with the introduction of this new nvidia card shouldn't it? With
    a bit of luck I should be able to get an XP2800 and a 9800pro for £200 :)
    That's if I don't destroy my MoBo when flashing the BIOS :-(

    The Barton (Model 10) has 512K L2 cache and runs on a 333 or 400 FSB.
    T-Breds (Model 8) have 256K L2 and run on a 266 or 333 FSB.
    I would expect prices to drop but not any faster then they have been.
    With DDR ram prices going sky-hi IOW if video cards/ram is next?

    Flashing shouldn't be a problem, just follow Asus's directions for
    *your* board.
