I just opened up the new box of goodies I got and it has a pleasant new suprise. It is the the new processor with 800MHz FSB, yep, not the full blown 1066 but hey, this should be one good CPU to have that sure is ready to rock and roll with fast DDR2.

Now why did I say rock and roll? Well, if you're one of those overclocker who happen to have the newer mobos but still using the older generation CPU then this is one good upgrade path. The motherboard will surely have enough juice for at least 266MHz FSB while a DDR2-533MHz can easily do that on stock vDIMM as well. So yeah, this looks like a very good upgrade path. See details below...
