I'm in the process of buying a new computer. I was thinking off going all out and getting a new 400mhz intel based cpu. Someone has told me that there is no point in getting anything higher than 233mhz becuase the hardware won't take advantage of the greater speed. It was something about the bus speed and PCI. The same person also mentioned that in a few months that PCI2 will be comming and then the hardware can actually take advantage of a 400mhz chip. The person I am getting this information is not a 100% reliable. I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on this and give me a full description of this hole thing.
