    as long as your motherboard supports it, the Barton is better than the Thoroughbred for the same frequency due to the larger cache.

    I'm not sure about performance/price though.

    The Barton is the next generation after the Tbred B..
    so it should be better has a larger L2 cache also..

    I'd go with an Athlon XP2500..with an Abit NF7-s rev. 2.0 if your interested in overclocking..also if overclocking the ram that u get is VERY important, I can not emphasize that enough..

    Good luck..

    the barton has a higher cache, although you won't be able to tell the difference. I would go with the Barton over TBred though.
