Who's happiest with their setup?


Looking to migrate over from Intel and was wondering who is the most satisfied with their system's performance. And maybe include why that is...

Which motherboard should you buy? Get the final word here. Check out the latest Overclockers reviews:

It's kinda hard to compare who is more satisfied..... you'd have people all over the board pipe up. In general, I think most people would say that an Athlon or a Duron on a KT133A board is a pretty satisfying combo. DDR is almost here though - I dont think it's quite mature just yet but it's getting close. If you're looking to make the jump from Intel (and have a passable system for now) I'd recommend giving it a month or two and let all things DDR mature a little.

See sig. I am VERY happy with my set-up. It was a lot of work with the research to get the best combo of parts, but all is very good!!

I love my Abit KT7AR and Duron 650 Combo. Smokin' fast and easy on the pocket book. See my sig for details.

hard question u have here, coz if i say im very satisfied with my AMD setup, i bet there will be a guy in the next post trashing my setup and shouting it is **** and unstable.

i have a KT7 with a 700@900-950TB (watercooled), 256 ram, GTS, yamaha sound card, 60XGP Hdd and its rock stable, it runs all the time as it is a small server.
