    Tbred 1700+ uprade question

    is it worth upgradeing form a 1.4 thunderbird to a Tbred 1700+. Because i am a gamer and i need more performance and i wanna OC aswell. I am only running an A7A266 Rev1.03 with bios 1012.003. So going to a 2200+ or 2400+ is out of the question with my current mobo. So is it worth getting th tbred 1700+?

    I'm not familiar with the mobo - does it OC well? If so, then maybe the upgrade is worthwhile. Otherwise, probably not. I'd say you'd want to get at least ~1750Mhz to make it worthwhile. +350Mhz and the additional instruction sets of Palomino and up should make a decent difference.
