AMD Duron 1.6GHz 100MHz FSB to run a XP O's

  Giggle n' Bits 22:13 06 Nov 2003

Has anyone built a computer recently using a AMD Duron CPU with the 100FSB and run WinXP O's.

Just curios how the running of a machine base on these Duron's would be with the XP Home o's and a stick of say 256MB PC2100

I know they wouldn't fly along but is there any probs or running probs ?.

In january I built a friend a computer - 1.3 duron - jetway mobo 512mb pc133 sdram and a 32mb graphics card. Xp pro installed and no problems.
As you say it won`t fly but it does all it was built for.

Also also M8 flecc (long time no see).

You all put my mind at rest and I think I will buld a basic machine based on the Duron 1.6GHz

According to this place the 1.6GHz Duron spec says its got a 100MHz FSB Can someone tell me if this is the error on there page ref the Data for hte Duron Spec ? click here

If you click on the details which is a ! mark it pops up a window with the spec in.

Erhh what would DiSse and BSOD say for a AGP card on a budget, something like GF4 MX440 ? or ATI Radeon 7000 ?

Also i find this interesting feedback.

I have a 400MHz Celeron, 256MB of RAM and XP Pro - speed is more than ample for me...:-)

I also use systems with 900Mhs and 2MHz plus AMD chips and, on dialup, the difference in speed in downloads and page loading is almost indiscerable.

if it has a FSB of 100MHz or 133MHz.

I am leaving the post open to see if anyone has more vertification on this.

in my Post ! I think most people just accept the Duron as being a standard CPU with 1 FSB where here it has been proved to come in the two FSB speeds. I know the Duron at times can sound a bit boring but its going to help me put together a basic ish budget machine for a older family member.

I would go for one of them built in CPU's on Elite boards but apparently I read there specs are not what they seem to be so prefer to use a seperate CPU.

Again Thank you all here M8 bsod, The Sack (where did you get that name from?) Terminus, M8 DieSse,

These Durons are becoming value for money.

Cheers M8 BSOD !
