AMD all the way. I refuse to buy anything else when I can get the same or better performance for much cheaper. I just got an Athlon XP 2500+ and have it overclocked to 2.10 right now (up from 1.83) and have gotten it to about 2.30. And I only paid 80 bucks for it.

I got the Abit NF7-S and have had no problems with it and would recommend it to everybody. The sound is amazing and the ethernet is solid. Overall a great board.

I think you've gotten a boatload of info, guy101, you should have enough information to make an extremely educated desicion on your CPU....
