Does any company make a Socket 370 board that supports 512k cache P3s and DDR. It would also be nice if it had onboard LAN, an AGP slot, and onboard SCSI. Or would I be better off with a slot 1 board?

Also, could two p3 800s o/c to 1gig?

AFAIK Slot 1 CPUs are more expensive. And the cache runs slower than CPU speed.

Hmm... 800s will be at 8x100. So to reach 1 Gig you would need to OC the FSB to 125MHz. It may be possible...depend what OCing options the board has. You could just try 133MHz FSB to give you 1066MHz. The board should have a jumper to let you choose 100 or 133MHz FSB. Anything beyond that will be extra and I'm not sure that many Dual P3 boards have a lot of FSB/Vcore options.

I know the memory bandwidth sucks, but Abit's VP6 is probably the best board for overclocking dual P3's. Hard to find these days, now, and for good reason...
