    Sup guys, I'm a n00b when it comes to Intel based systems. this. I was wondering if any of you have a comparative link that reviews an Intel systems running the 850E with 1066rimm's vs one with the 875P with PC3200 ddr . Which one
    of the two is the b?etter performer?

    I have not seen any comparitive reviews, but the 850E w/1066 RDRAM is a step backward. Rambus support has been stripped from Intel's future chipset plans, and they will not support the technology in the near future.

    Go with the 875P, or the 865PE (Springdale). Their performance is generally on par, if you are looking to overclock get the 875P, if not go for the cheaper 865PE.

    I really don't recommend going for a RAMBUS solution at this point, DDR has reached and broken most of their records. Only a matter of time till intel discontinues the 850E chipset.

    If you want to get an 800 fsb cpu then the 850e isn't even an option. I'd be suprised if a 533 FSB 805e system could keep pace with a 800 FSB 875p system, and pricing should be about the same, with the exception of the CPU, which is stil a bit more for the 800 FSB version. The reason the 805e always pulled ahead was just the extra bandwidth, and now it is behind rather then ahead. The 850e was roughly equivalent to a dual PC2100 system such as the E7205, and the 875p has at least 10% over that.

    Apart from the 805E references GL all I got to say is "Aye!"

    The 875p is a great chipset, no doubt. One interesting thing about it regards max bandwidth... dual PC3200 should give you 6.4 GB/s peak backwdith, yet as you can see they're getting 4881 MB/s. But if you increase the bus and use a lower memory ratio so that the memory still runs at 200 MHz, you'll end up with a score significantly closer to 6.4 GB/s. Story is on overclockers.com, if anyone's interested.
