    Hey, any advice on this one....

    Got a dual P3 MSI board, with one P3 866.
    The HD (WD 20g+40g-7200rpm), ram (512), are up to snuff, but I need a faster CPU. Should I scrap the whole P3 deal and get a P4/Athlon XP, or buy another P3 866 to throw in there. (maybe even a matched pair of 1 ghz).

    A link to a website discussing this topic or just some good 'ol advice would be sweet. :p

    Thanks for the welcome Opus... :w:

    Yeah, the $600 price tag on that rig is a little out of reach right now... I know it's worth it, but... 'preciate the advice though.

    Huh? They aren't that expensive anymore!!

    I've seen them for just under $400!!!!

    Think about it, if you were to buy two AMD CPU's....close to $400.00 as well!

    Pricewatch has some listings for $350.00....

    Opus :D
