Ya...the Xp processers just have a higher clock speed. And are not optimized to Xp, to my knowledge.

[b:80b1b187d3]ThA_FiLeR[/b:80b1b187d3] - A raid board has an extra IDE port which allows u the option of connecting more hard drives/ or IDE devices

[b:80b1b187d3] Richie101 [/b:80b1b187d3] - why wouldnt u go for another Intel proccessor???

Xp processor uses the same chip core, code named Palomino which can be found in Athlon 4 notebook chips. It is supposed to use about 20% less power then the original Athlons and has 3DNow professional which adds 52 new 3D and multimedia instructions which makes it compatible with Intels SSE instructions.

They are definatly a much improved processor from the K6, and the only difference that I have noticed in my xp1800+ to the P4 1.7gig is that it is alot smoother and faster in gaming....but there is no difference between the two in speed to information to waiting applications.
Yes the AMD is alot cheaper, but I havent given up on Intel upping the anti, performance wise

AMD not only clocks at much faster speeds than the comparable Intel chip but it is much cheaper. However, there is a much bigger thing that makes AMD attractive. In the past few years, if you wanted to go up in speed with the Intel chips, you had to get a new mobo...at least four different ones I think. Meanwhile, AMD has remained with the same socket A mobo since the release of Athlon.

Just a thought!

Its like this, why would I buy a Ford Tempo( mini cooper for u brits), when I can afford a BMW? I mean you could probably tweak the ford Tempo (mini Cooper) to run just as fast or even faster than a BMW, but honestly folks, lets get real. Why accept an imitator, get the real deal, with intel.

I have owned an Intel ever since the days of the P60.
I have owned P1,P2 AND P3 computers and for a change decided to risk all on an Athlon processor.To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement.I am not an expert on processors,but they say a picture says a thousand words

No...no...no! You got it all wrong Boogs. Bad comparison. You are trying to say that AMD is a cheaper (in quality) chip. No way! The only reason that Intel has such expensive chips is because they were once the monopoly but believe me...their time is up! Just do some review reading! Go to tomshardware.com...you will see who makes the Beemer!

I wanted to stir up some commotion about this issue. I really truly would have bought an AMD CPU, had it not been for the incredible deal I got. I got a 1.6MHZ P4, and mobo for around 200 bucks US. My local computer shop (in japan) ran a new year's special, and I took advantage of it. Though I did look at an XP 1800 & 1900 at least twice, with an ASUS MOBO, but the price was beyond what I was willing to pay.
I do think though that intel will always be around, as well as AMD. Much like Coke and Pepsi.

I definitely agree with boogs
especially on the last statement "I do think though that intel will always be around, as well as AMD. Much like Coke and Pepsi." very nice example, the exact situation :)

Boogs! You make me sick! You get to go down to your local electronics store and get stuff that won't be out here for another year! LOL Did you read about the 1 terabyte cd/dvd disc that will be coming out in Japan soon? Check out the tech section

For example, my keitai,(cellphone) has broadband, MP3 downloading, a built in camera, and screensavers that are very kewl. It has over 300 ring tones, etc... They have some very L33t s*** here, but its all in Japanese. Luckily, they have made manuals in English and my phone can be changed to English. It is very nice.
I have not heard of this terabyte DVD/CD but I am very interested. I will check it out immediately. Sounds kewl.
What amazed me here was the amount of navigators people have in their cars, you see them everywhere. IN the states, you only see them in expensive cars, but here they are in everything from mercedes to Mini pajero's (mitsubishi small truck). The best part is they are multifunctional. YOu can watch satellite TV, play DVD's, get the weather from the internet, and get a visual guide to where you are going, kind of like a 3D atlas. It even shows the buildings, streets, stop signs, etc... It will also give you driving instructions by voice.
