Biostar + Mobile Athlon XP (Thoroughbred core)
I'm getting a Biostar M7NCG and I'm deciding whether to put in a newer Mobile Athlon XP-M (Barton core - starts at 2200+) or an older Mobile Athlon XP (Thouroughbred - freqs of 1600+ to 2200+ aka "mobile athlon 4").
Anyone know if the older Thouroughbred core has any probs with the biostar? I know the barton + Biostar has bios issues that are easily solved:
Anyway, there's no difference in power in the ones I'm looking at (35 watts), but since people frequently underclock the XP-M anyway, why not go with the cheaper ($40 vs. $80) cpu?
So...Anyone using the older mobile XP with the biostar? If not, I might just go with the Barton, which I know works.
