These PCU's are compatable with the new BTX form factor. But I am finding out that the components needed to build a BTX rig just ain't out there yet.

You can get the mobos, and you can get a CPU (LGA 775). But, unless you can get hold of a CPU that comes with the thermal module, you are SOL. I've combed Google for an hour and a half, but can not find anyone that stocks them. TaiSol and CoolerMaster are making them, but none of their online retailers even list the thermal module in inventory. Then there's trying to find a decent case that's not a slapped together afterthought...

Oh, well. I am an AMD dude, anyway.

There is a Beta Version of the 64bit OS MS XP for AMD. Now that Intel has it's 64bit processors released i'm sure you'll be able to get a Beta for them very soon as well.

You can use the same one, it is not AMD specific.

Here's the link to the Tom's Hardware article:-


As others have said, we can't compare the two until an official 64-bit OS comes out...
