Not really. All modern CPUs have BIST (built-in self tests) that run
even before the BIOS starts, and it would be really rare to actually
have a "working" system with a faulty CPU. Errors in mprime usually
indicate some other problem, such as bad memory, bad BIOS settings,
overheating or an incompatibility of CPU/motherboard etc.
Going back to what you said previously, you got an Nvidia 5200 graphics
card? Were these ever produced for PCI express or are you using a) a
normal PCI one or b)You got one of these weird mobos that have both AGP
and PCI express? As I understand there are no AGP-only motherboards for
Another thought: Sometimes the CPU cooler is not entirely seated,
resulting in bad thermal contact of the heatsink/CPU assembly. This is
not unusual in the 775 socket since the mechanism requires quite some
pressure to lock and some people are afraid to apply it ;)
