Voted "Custom P4", but that might not be entirely correct ... I asume that it will be a custom build Pentium 5 system :) ... I'm, of coruse, watching the AMD64 closely too, but at the moment I don't see that 64bit would be of any help to me...

P5 would most probably be a 64-bit. I'm most probably wrong since I've heard no news regarding a P5.
All I know is that Intel is releasing/released the P4c.

I just did a custom p4 about 5 months ago and did a custom XP for the wife last week.

Who knows, I do custom all the time. Oh yah last week I did a custom AMD t-bird for a home FTP server. I always do custom, never pre-built. They are crap!

AMD 64 will probably what I will get next, especially if I can get the 64-bit windows then. I will be able to afford upgrading in April (and if my wife lets me... :/ lol) while I'm in Korea. Cheap hardware out there, I hear!

I might do my shopping in HK next summer... let's hope that the government doesn't raise the sales tax which currently stands at 0% :)

Custom built my P4 3 weeks ago. Next PC could be an Intel Prescott with PCI Express and the next version of SATA

I'm still using a 1.2 GHz Tualatin Pentium III, and all my software runs smooth as silk. So I'm not wasting any money on unnecessary upgrades for a long time. I voted Pentium 4, but like some other's have mentioned it will probably be the successor to that; only time will tell though. All I know is it will be an Intel chipset.

Voted for custom Intel - 64 bit... that includes the processors from Intel that we currently do not know of.. Until next summer I will only need slight upgrades, so I'll just wait and see..

Have an P4 already..

Intel forever :)
