Upgrade time again

Ok im about to upgrade old faithfull.

2 questions i have.

  1. USB2.0, is it backwards compat with 1.0 ? cause all the new MBs only say 2.0, and ive never seen the connection in real life so i dont know if they are the same size etc etc ?

  2. best mobo and CPU combo…i think im a intel man…im looking at perhaps the p4 2.0 and an asus mobo.

whats good chipsets ?

  1. Yes

  2. Intel for me too, the price is now right , just got p4 2.0 , and ordered this mobo; http://www.vr-zone.com/reviews/EPoX/4G4A+/ looking forward to running it at 2.66!
