The one at 533fsb is an older version of the cpu and does not have hyperthreading. It was phased out about a year ago now.
The other 800 fsb is newer but still over a year old in design and went out of production earlier on this year.
The latter if you can support it is much faster, both of the above are northwood cores. From 2.8GHz onwards there are two cores for socket 478 all the way upto 3.4GHz (excluding the extreme edition which iis another core again).

The other core is codenamed 'prescott' and in general runs hotter than its predecesors, has more l2 cache, in most applications it is the same speed as the old core, but it does win a few and loose some in benchmarks, it tends to loose more than it wins.

@ sasrob:

Ok, it was kind of hard to see, but the one @533mhz is actually a 2.8Gig and not a 2.6. As for the one you're interested in (2.6gig@800), it won't work with that particular board. That board uses some version of the 845 series chipset. I haven't been able to find out (MSI doesn't recognize an MS-6506) which version 845, but after looking at all of them, the real problem is that FSB-support ranges only from 400-533. That 2.6 needs 800. If you don't want to buy another board, then I'd try to find a P4 that runs on a 400 bus until you find out if the chipset (845"something") is one that goes to 533. Either way, any P4 that has Hyper-Threading runs on an 800 bus, so if you get that 2.6C, you'll also need another board to go with it. Stick with one that uses either an 865G, 865PE, or an 875P chipset. These provide the 800 bus needed as well as support for user-selectable graphic cards. I dont think you'd be too happy w/on-board graphics! In fact, I'll narrow it down to the 865PE. Boards using the 875P are always more expensive and boards with the 865G usually don't carry as many features (and aren't that much cheaper!). Most boards w/865PE retail for less than $100US. I couldn't tell you which boards to stay away from though, so ask around. Hope this helps!

Good Luck

Arrow Aria Technology Limited -"Aria PC Technology"

I would be careful with motherboards from Aria Technology Ltd -it misdescribed mine, and despite even its owner Aria Taheri having been contacted at his direct contact address, it would neither refund for faulty goods nor even even offer an explanation re. the motherboard

With my limited experience dealing with old Packard-Bell PC's... If you can afford to, just junk the Packard-Hell hardware. If you have no choice, we'll help you as best we can!
