    Me thinks you've probably got a socket 423 or a socket 478.

    423 were the originaly P4 sockets but they didn't last very long. I have a socket 423 with a P4 1.7GHz processor and 2 x 256 PC800 Rambus sticks in it too, but that went to my son a long time ago.

    Apart from these two it's just the LGA775 which is current.
    Core i7 920, Asus P6T, 3x2 1333 DDR3, Vista x64, Ageing 8800GT (Next upgrade!), Adaptec 1430SA with 4x500 gig HD (2x RAID 0 and 2x RAID 1), Blu Ray rewriter, 1TB HD for data, housed in Cooler Master ATCS 840 awaiting water cooling with Corsair HX1000 PSU, Microsoft Habu and Reclusa, 22" and 17" TFT.

    is there any way to tell apart from counting? Would i be able to passively cool a 1.7? I was thinking about making a server, is that powerfull enough?

    I would get a new case as well cause it is actually falling apart lol

    Its got 256mb of ram and a 7200 HDD (i may use it as a NAT or something so i could just plong some new HDDs in)

    I need to think of more uses for it, is it powerfull enough for a media server? (to stream music and video to tv or hi fi with a wi fi box attatched)

    what for - powering the space shuttle, splitting the atom, file serving ??

    i may use it as a NAT or something so i could just plong some new HDDs
    by NAT I assume you mean Network address Translation ? if so what has that got to do with harddrives ?


    Only you can really answer that, depends what your doing, how many users, what you want it for etc etc.

    In the media server suggestion you make - your CPU is not going to be a bottle neck, as your in reality just file serving (unless your decoding TV on the file).

    Your ram is lacking for a nice full Server class OS, more so if your going to be using the server to buffer data (such as the media service) .

    you real bottle neck is going to be the wi-fi card

    NAT= Network Attatched Storage.

    That would just be file serving?

    Would 512mb be good?

    What Mb/s is mpeg2? Im guessing alot, so mabe just for music. (if i go with the media server, or can i has it as NAT and a media (music) server?)

    Should be enough AFAIK. Friend of mine has a fileserver with an Athlon 1GHz, 384MB RAM and a few 160GB IDE hard disks.

    ~8MBit/sec? I think. Not 100% sure on that one. Depends on quality I guess.

    Also I am pretty sure Rambus was Socket 423 only but I could be wrong.

    You could easily stream MPEG2 (DVD quality anyway) over a 10 megabit connection with a slower cpu tham a 1.7Ghz P4.

    NAT = Network Attached Storage?

    NAS = Network Attached Storage

    The clue's in the letters...
