Your right on target. I have all the bills paid, and there's a tax refund comin'. A bigger tax return than I ever gotten back from uncle Sam. I want another computer for my shop in the basement, and let my wife have this P4 machine.
I originally wanted an AMD rig that would be comparable speed to the P4. I knew the processor speed would be lower, but thats all I knew.
But, when you say, "Build an AMD rig that costs the same money." That makes sense too.
Spend the same money and see the performance difference between the 2 different machines.
I've showed you what I have in the Pentium. Show me what to build for about $700--800
