I wouldn't waste the money on the 2400. I would either go with the 2800+ or wait till the next gen comes out. But if you not liking that answer I would say the 2400 Barton.

either should net you around the same performance...

the 100 difference in the PR rating is not that big :)

buy whats in your budget... and buy better memory with the savings... :)

I would get any core that runs at 333MHz so you can run it in sync with your pc2700 ram. Im gonna order a 2500 tommorrow.

if I were you I'd get the xp2700. I read some articles and it seems that the 2700 out did the 2500 barton by a ton. Besides, it's only an extra 40 bucks to get the XP2700 over the 2500 on pircewatch.

If anything, i f you want real power out of a barton, get a xp3000 barton. Of course, that's about 500 dollars...

The barton core overclocks better than the other cores.
Don't waste your money on a 2800+ or a 3000+, on about 3 OCing forums I frequent I've seen the 2500+ OC the same as the 2800+ and the 3000+. They are the same chip, just different names.

You can get the asus motherboard for a lot cheaper than that (about 50 dollars cheaper). It's supposed to retail for 140, I think, but don't quote me on that.

You don't need the pc3200 ram its really a waste. Stick to pc2700 because its 333mhz like the FSB so they run synchronously.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
