I’m currently running a 1.6 ghz duron on a KT266A board. I can easily hit 1.9ghz, but around 1950 or so it starts to get unstable, and it’s either my motherboard (most likely) or RAM timings, not the proc. I’m looking into getting a kt600 so I could run my duron at 333 fsb, giving me 2ghz, plus I’m going to be getting 5.1 speakers down the line so I could definitely use the onboard 6-channel audio.
I guess my question is whether it’s worth it to get this motherboard now, or just buy a sound card. Does a kt600 offer better I/O, and will agp 8x really help (I’m only running a ti4200)? Basically will I see a performance increase beyond just 80 or so extra mhz? Thanks for your advice.
