    Hello. I have what I believe to be a Pentium 4 1.4GHz 256K cache 400Mhz FSB Socket 423 in an Intel D850GB mainboard with 640 MB of Ram, in a total of 4 Rimms (2x64 + 2x256). I was thinking about an processor upgrade but my reseller tells me that the most powerful processor I can get for my system is a Pentium 4 1.9GHz 256K cache 400Mhz FSB Socket 423. Are Rimms dead? Is ddr the most fast solution available? Any help would be appreciated. :(

    Well Socket 423 is pretty much dead from what I've seen. Rimms on the other hand are still around. Rimms are mostly been pushed in to the server market from what I've read, also from what I've read the only ram on the market that can really give you the best performance with a Pentium 4 is Rimm technology. I hope this at least is of some help to you
