Cooler666 said:with that kind of thinking i would get a AMD, but don't. The Intel Pentium 3 celeron has 4 times less Cache than a Pentium 4 Northwood 1.8 and the Northwoods can be overclocked by at least 400mhz-600mhz easily. so much for your biased comparisons.
funnyperson1 said:bang for the buck i would recommend a Tualatin celeron which has 256 cache and is basically a PIII and with the .13 micron manifacturing process overclocks like crazy.....Cpu should cost you 70$ and mbo 80$ and in the end would perform like a P4 1.9
but the P41.6A with 512cache is also extremely good it is also .13 micrn....after ocing it should perform like an Athlon 2000+/or a Celeron Tualatin clocked at 1.6-1.7.....cpu costs aroun 140$ and mob around 130$.....
depends on how much you want to spend.....

Well, I'm just looking at performance ATM, if that helps you with a recommendation.
Black Hawk said:Sounds good. But why not a 1.6A, Soyo Dragon Ultra, and 512MB of Kingmax 2700 RAM? Sound be about the same, since DDR only begins to bottle neck P4's around 2.4Ghz....
Black Hawk said:True. But I don't think the Mobo and RAM are out yet. If they are, do you know of a good place to buy them from?
(Note: One more post and I hit 250...... I'm so happy!)
Black Hawk said:Well, I certainly wouldn't know if your wrong, but I'll look into it. Just one thing: If P3's beat P4's, why are you suggesting a P4?
Edit: Just one more post......
Black Hawk said:Oh Okay. And if you are referring to me, I'm not trying to spam. Anyhow, P4-T, 1.6A, 2x256MB Samsung PC 800 sound good?
Edit: WOOT! 4 STARS!!!!!!!!!
