wasnt there already a thread for this? i posted the best cpu for that mobo?

EDIT: yep:http://www.computerforums.org/showthread.php?t=57310
That mobo does NOT support hyperthreading. The cpu i posted in that thread is the best for that mobo.

The one Taylor gave you a link to in the other thread is the fastest processor you can get for your board. The Prescott P4's are the one's with 800MHz and HT, his board only supports Northwood or Willimate. I have 2 Prescott 2.8GHz HT processors. They work great, but get hot.

don't get the processor you linked in the previous thread, it's a different socket type and won't work with your motherboard...

taylor linked the best choice for you unless you're gonna replace the motherboard as well as the processor...
