    I have an "Abit IC7-G Max II Advance" motherboard I recently purchased and was going to buy a P4 processor for it.

    After evaluating my needs/wants I've decided to purchase a P4 in the 2.6ghz area...

    Im not very keen on specifics...so I was hoping you could tell me if the following Chip will work properly with the board I have.

    Chip:
    Pentium 4 Processor (CPU)
    sSpec Number: SL6PL

    2.40GHz

    533 MHz FSB

    512 L2 CACHE

    (I can't find the actual size of the chip anywhere so I dont even know if it will fit on board)

    Thanks for your help!

    ok so the pin number relates to the size....(478 would be smaller then a 700)

    also, what had thrown me off was that rReg Number....people's auction sites include this number with the auction....so I was assuming this related in some way to the compatability....am i wrong?

    478 is the amount of pins in the processor. That SL number is the model number of the CPU. It is a 478 Pin processor. If you are buying a processor in an auction, make sure they have a good reputation and a DOA policy. It appears that processor will work with your board. Check out ABIT's site it will give you everything you need to know.

    I got it cheap (137.00) so i was thinkin of reselling...but what u think about it so far?

    I know they're $160 brand new now. I got mine 3 or 4 months ago for $180 new. You don't stand to make a fortune selling it.

    I haven't had 1 single problem, if you're not retarded and you can read directions, you won't have any trouble. Mine works like a dream no problems what-so-ever.
