Lets say i want to change the CPU on my mobo at the moment. i have a 1ghz pIII laying around that fits my mobo. i have a socket 370.
will my Hard Drive still recognize my comp if i make the switch? or will i have ot reinstall everything?
im just trying to see if there is a minor or major performance difference between 733mhz and 1ghz .

well i stopped by the PC store today. met the owner. seems like a pretty cool guy. im getting a good discount cause im advertising for him. i should have word on the total cost of the PC im gonna get built. The only thing i need only on at the moment is..... (drum roll please), yea the guy suggested that i get the 3800+ Barton AMD Athlon. i have no idea on that one. he said it was a good overclocker with a certain AsRock mobo. but i should be gettin an appraisal on the price of the parts in a few days. so i'll let you guys know.
you will regret getting the Barton, they make them on Socket As and they are OLD as ow. I have one and i feel the pain on limited parts supporting it. About the HDD, it should be ok, especially with SATA, just plug it in and away you go. it should detect the HDD, just make sure, if you already have Windows installed, go to the BIOS and set the first boot to HDD. if you are installing a new OS, then select CDROM
(most OS come in CD)

Can somebody please advise me on this? I know Abit makes a motherboard rated at 2000mhz FSB.

But the MSI,DFI and Abit boards are all just as good and cheaper if not better as is the case on most fronts.
