Is there any point in putting an older 533FSB P4 2.4 on a new i875 board? I would really like to have dual DDR but Im short on cash for a new 800FSB CPU.

Sure! The 2.4B works quite nicely on the Canterwood mobos. Obviously the 800 bus CPUs with the higher FSB would be better, but if you can only upgrade in small steps, this will work just fine.

OK, cool. Im upgrading from Abit IT7-Max2 rev.2.0 which maybe is overkill.
