Supports processors at 400 / 533MHz front side bus
Or higher, it says. But doesn't say how higher. It's a fair assessment that if it is a Pentium 4 socket 478 chip, it should work. Then it's a case of choosing one that suits your budget.
Have a look on the Asus site for the latest BIOS updates too - they might have a clue as to what chip you can go to - http://support.asus.com/download/download_item.aspx?model=P4S533-MX&product=1&type=All&SLanguage=en
Er, no - it doesn't tell you. But if you go thru the page you will find BIOS version 1005 that "
P4S533-MX BIOS 1005 Support new Intel P4 CPU" and the latest bios is 1007.002 There's a motherboard user manual further down on the page. Make sure you choose the English one. Seems the issue is FSB speed, 533 or 400. No big problem for most, but I did see a Pentium4 3.0Ghz chip at 800 FSB so just check the speed of the processor matches the specs the motherboard handles. Like you say, looks like the 3.2 might be too fast because of the FSB requirement. Remember, a P4 is going to be quicker than a celeron anyhow so just go with the fastest 533 FSB chip you can find. A short-cut to the english manual, here - http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4s533-mx/e1187_p4s533-mx.pdf
There is no maximum video memory. When you add ram you add ram that can cap off at some point but is not called video memory. It is just computer memory. Sometimes your onboard video will share some of that memory. Older systems dont handle more then a gig 2-3 year old systems general no more then 2 gigs and really new systems can go up to 4 gigs of ram
It is the video card. Newer games are so graphic intensive that they freeze up the system if there is not enough video memory. You could try upgrading RAM but I had a problem running newer games until I installed a graphic card that had at least 512 mb video ram onboard. Hope this helps.
first of all you should know that even though pentium 4 isn't that old there are still some problems, for example the d processor uses sd-ram or ddr1 ram which are much slower that ddr2 and ddr3 "ddr1 isn't that slow" but if u're using SD-ram then u might wanna upgrade your rams a bit.
