Go for the 800. I recently bought the 2.4/533 and am regretting not spending a bit mopre for the 800. Actually,Diesee responded to my thread recommending the 800 but being the miser that I am I went for the 533 which was on offer at aria for £116 which was a good price three wks ago. Its now gone down in price inevitably.
I have 3.06 cpu, with Audigy 2 platinum, 1024 ddr and Hercules 9800 pro. I've been having LOTS of problems with games locking up. I'm not saying that it's due to the cpu, I've changed my graphics card for my old Prophet 8500LE and it plays ok (ie, no lockups). I THINK there's some kind of conflict, maybe with the Audigy 2, so I'm going to replace the 9800 and remove the Audigy (I've got on board sound on my mobo) and see what happens. Hope that's of interest to you.
