    Beasty box my friend! My job just got a bunch of dells w/2.6s in 'em. I don't think I've ever seen Windows boot that fast! Now i gotta convince them to give me one to replace my PIII 450 :roll:

    We want a full report when you get it up and running!

    The S in P4S800 strands for SIS, which means that it uses a Sis chipset. My advice, is for the least amount of worry, go Intel with the P4C800, even if you have to mail order it.

    Thanks for that mitzelplik, I would never go with the sis chipset, and have always kicked out the extra for the Intel chipset. My local dealer probably doesn't even carry the P4S800 for that very reason.

    I just put a box together with a p4p800 custom. Giant step up over the Abit board that died on me last weekend. :tu:
