    370 or slot 1

    I have a friend who has a celeron 433 with a gigabyte LX 370 board and another friend who has a celeron 466 on an asus p3bf slot1.
    Does a celeron on a 370 board run better than on a slot1.

    ------------------
    ERROR!. WINDOWS IS TOO ****ING GAY TO BOOT FROM THIS SYSTEM BECAUSE WINDOWS IS TOO BUGGY AND ****TY TO RUN. PLEASE FORMAT.
    Thank you for booting windows for the first time "Error, This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shutdown"

    I have had 370 cellys running on both.. Except for a problem with a cheap slot converter the performance was the same..
    This was with ABIT BX boards... You might
    see some differences between boards that do not have the same chip set..

    For upgrade purposes I would recommend a good slot1 board and a new slot converter that
    supports the new coppermines...

    I guess if you had your choice from the gitgo (ie. before buying), I'd go with the ppga board and cpu. Why? Because all new celerons use ppga, and why use a converter if you don't have to. I can't see any possible advantage in using slot 1 unless you already have a slot 1 board and have a restricted budget.

    I don't think all current ppga boards support fc-pga... In fact I'm not aware of any that work without some modification or adapter...

    the biggest advantage to slotted CPU's are the fact that they can be insulated much better for super cooling
