    And does that resolution and graphical quality make you win more often or make the game more exciting?

    yes and yes

    high res makes for better sniping at long distances

    Hahhahahah, YES

    I have two pcs to play the exact same games on. The Dell plays slower, it's choppier, drops frames and I don't do as well.

    My pc, is fast, liquid smooth and allows me to snipe even through fog or some other nasty frame hard hitting effect.

    Well there's the difference, I never snipe...usually by the time your crosshair is on my head you're already dead :p

    eh, the P4T533 is problematic from what i'm reading.

    i'd go with the 2.5. the multiplier is higher, cause the FSB is at 100 as opposed to 133. boost it to 133, you're flyin' at 3.3.

    Ah ha! If you are annoyed by me or people saying stupid things that seem obvious, then skip this post! for I am proud of my newfound knowledge in this stupid book I'm reading.

    The Motherboard and processor work at a the same speed, but a multiplier multiplies the speed of the processor individually and still allows the processor to talk to the motherboard, right? And FSB = Frontside Bus, which would run at 100 Mhz in this case, and you'd be bumping it up to 133 Mhz...

    So if that information is correct (i'm kinda assuming it's flawed somewhere) would the base Mhz boost in the FSB automatically change the base speed of the processor and thus the multiplier is multiplying a larger base, therefore skipping your processor from 2.5 to 3.3 ghz? I'm hoping I'm right for once on this stuff :D

    So what are you doing to increase the FSB speed? Is there just a simple value you change somewhere in CMOS or something like that?

    eh? 2.53 runs 133 x 4 native, multiplier of 19. ideally i want to OC my system to 160 x 4 which puts the CPU at 3.04GHz (160 x 19).

    mentos, the multiplier is the the CPU frequency divided by the fsb speed. most boards have CMOS settings for this stuff, some don't. for those that don't you need to use jumpers or solder ( :yeah: ).

    Right, that's what I was saying, in a really long and twisted way.
    Without a multiplier, the CPU Frequency = FSP Speed, then when you slide the multiplier into the equation, to figure out the new CPS Frequency, you just multiply the Multiplier setting and the FSP Speed together, and you have the CPU Frequency.

    I would assume that most new boards would have the CMOS settings, that the soldering would be a thing of the stone age by now. :uhh:

    correct me if i'm wrong, but the most intel boards can go up to is 150... least, that's the gist i got from THG.

    2.5 runs 100 with a multiplier of (obviously) 25. clock the bus to 133, it goes up to 3.3. bring it up to 150, you're at 3.75.

    What you're saying is true if the CPU speed were 2.5 harley...

    It's 2533.3333 recurring MHz. Like Jake said, 2.53.

    nah, people are getting P4 systems up to 160+ x4 and 190+ x3. there was this one freak on hardocp that got his P4 system to like 198 x4 :eek: SMOKIN!!! of course it wasn't stable, but it actually posted :yeah:

    I can just imagine some overclocker nerd inviting his friend over, "hey, you gotta check out my computer, it's so kickass I overclocked everything!".

    He turns on the computer, it POST's, but locks up while the OS is loading and the nerd is like "Huh huh (Butthead style) huh huh, wasn't that fun? that ***** is runnin' at 3.7 GHz"

    the old northwood is 2.53 at 133, the new one is 2.5 at 100.
