    I have a question about these "BARTON" chips i keep hearing about. Right now im between upgrading my mobo or my cpu. I currently have the asus a7v266 mobo with a 266 fsb. IM kinda wondering if it would be worth the money to dump 150 bucks into a xp2500 barton cpu with the 266 or if it would be better to jump into the 333 fsb first. How much of a performance am i missing with that extra fsb speed?

    What o/c speeds would i be looking at with that barton? Kinda wondering if my mobo is obsolite or if it still has some life in it! What do you think would be the best boost for my money?

    I bought an A7N8X Deluxe and a Barton 2500+ Retail for $175 shipped. Board is a refurb though but I saved a lot of money and didn't go broke.

    Of course ordered it at Newegg.
