    How much difference is it going to make?

    I am replacing my computer (in sig) with this one


    AMD Athalon XP 2200+
    Aopen AK77-333
    512MB DDR PC2100
    Aopen Casing With 450W PSU

    i have option of changing my Aopen Ti4200 with MSI Ti4600 for small sum of money and i think i will be going for it too,

    so how much difference is this new rig going to make (speed & performance) my current TBIRD is very HOT (66C) will this XP run much cooler?

    PSU : Corsair GS 800 Casing : CM 690 III Cooling : CM Seidon 240M CPU, 1 x 200 MM, 6 x 120 MM RAM : 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz DDR3 Storage : Corsair Force GS 3 240 GB SSD Boot Drive, 5 TB+ Data Storage Display :1x42" Panasonic C10 Plasma and Dell 23" 1080p LED Speakers :Onkyo 605 with Polk Audio 5.1 Setup

    yes the xp will run much cooler just make sure you get a tbread rev B now right off the bat you wont see a huge performance gain but it will be faster cause ddr is much faster than sdr mem... now where the real diffenence is in how far you can overclock the tbread and thats wher the real performance gain is... now a few suggestions make sure the ram is a brand name like crucal kingston or corsair if possible get pc2700 mem (if you have the choice between pc2700 mem and trading your 4200 for a 4600 go for the mem and overclock the 4200...) now for the motherboard get an abit kx7333r they are pretty cheap and really good overclockers... also try for a thermalright ax7 heatsink you can put a quiet fan on it and still get good performance (I average around 44 degrees celsius when gaming with my ax7 and 39cfm fan and thats overclocked 250mhz with max voltage tbreads run extremely cool compared to tbirds) well thats my reccomendation....

    Ghost68 is right on, but the mobo choice is up to you. There are other name brands that are just as good. The ASUS board based on the KT333 chipset is good, but stay away from the KT400 chipset for now. Wait until the KT400A chipset comes out if you want to go with the 400 speed.

    oh i forgot hehe scratch the kx7 get and asus a7v333 raid board(you never know when youll get a new harddrive and its better to get raid and not use it than to not get it and gind out later you really need it its a just in case thing...) with a tbread (XP2200+) your processor will be multi unlocked which can help keep your pci/agp in spec when you overclock
