    VIA c3 1.2ghz mobo bundle

    I'm new, and I apologize if this is in the incorrect posting spot.
    What do you all think of the VIA C3 1.2Giga Pro Processor for a carputer. I have no experience with these processors. Does the Earthmate or similiar GPS's need USB 2.0?
    Any thoughts on this?, the price sure is right.

    Cheaper.

    One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet that this isn't a 1.2Ghz, it has a PR of 1.2Ghz but runs at 800mhz.

    Performance Rating.

    It's the same numbering system that AMD uses too number a processor. It's a 850mhz that runs the same speed as an industry standard 1.3ghz CPU.

    Don't get it, there's a reason they are selling it so cheap.

    is that personal conjecture or do you have reason to believe that?

    Thanks in advance...i just thought it would be a fun second project, but no sense in wasting time and money if it its going to be worthless.
