Windows 2000 Server


   I built a database server that uses Intel Chip with the 800 front side bus.  Will windows 2000 server benifit from the 800 front side bus, and do you think there will be any problems with windows 2000?

http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0,aid,110206,00.asp will tell you a bit about the 800.  Lots of other articles to be found with a google.   I know of no downside.for W2K server.........it is designed to run on any current intel chip and there are no reported incompatibilities here.   Any increase in processor power and/or bus speed will only benefit W2K server performance.

Keep in mind that the other big factor in W2K server performance is amount of RAM.....more is mo'better........max it out if you can afford it.......another performance factor is to get the paging file onto a different volume than the OS.......and make it a min. of 1.5 the size of your physical RAM.
