    Newbie seeks advice !!!!!

    First, Hi to all who read this.
    Any input on my question would be much appreciated.

    Here's the deal, current system spec :

    original P3 500
    Gigabyte BX2000 mobo
    128 meg PC100
    SB Live
    C/L Annihilator Pro
    Maxtor 17.2 gig HD
    Midi tower case, maybe mini.....LOL, it's the middle sized one anyway, never sure about them

    Now the question, sorry to drag on,

    I'm thinking of upgrading to a P3 600-650 CuMine. Already decided on Asus P3V4X mobo, either 128 or 256 PC133.
    To o/c my CPU which chip is best,there are so many variants lately, 100FSB or 133FSB.
    Is my case OK for size, I'd be gutted if I had to replace it, so nice to look at, sad, I know

    Also, could I get away with just adding another fan inside my case. I've been to Duckman's H/Page and seen his setup,
    Something like that is no good for me, I'd come in p*ssed one night, trip and end up choking myself in all the leads

    Good on ya Duckman, I wouldn't have a clue where to start, but a question for you if you read this :
    Does is really make much difference ?
    I suppose it must.

    Anyway, where was I, so I hope whoever reads this understands what info I may require.

    If you've managed to read all this post without getting confused, you're a better man than I

    Thanks for any help !!!!!


    So many advances, yet little changes.............

    First off= Get the 100fsb cpu. Next, from what I've seen/ ( < gonna get flack on this 1 )/lol I'd get the 600E Slot 1 of course/ As to the case fan..hmmmmmmmmm Depends on your mobo temp now. In theory you Should only need 1 fan drawing air in the case at the lower front, Your Power Supply Exhausting air out the back, and no doubt, at least 1 other fan below the Power Supply exhausting. Hope this helps
