If you can afford the $50 extra you can get a 423 to 478 adapter Here
Well I got a motherboard that was cheap and now I am considering this adapter after seeing the price on the 2.0Ghz 423 compared to the 2.0Ghz 478. I have looked over the notes and installation guides and such with the adapter but I am wondering a couple things.
One, the BIOS on my board only supports up to a 1.5Ghz processor now. If its updated it can handle up to a 2.0Ghz. Any one know if I would have to have the updated BIOS to use the adapter or would that not matter anymore?
Two, would using this adapter cause any problems in the long run being that it is sort of a strange setup (at least to me
). Since my board is supported by the adapter I wouldnt think it would but you never know when you are using things in a way they shouldnt be used :tongue2:. Im just wondering because it it my first built system and I dont want to mess things up and have to wait around for extra money to fix it.
