it is usually hard to find (read expensive) a board for an athlon that has 4 dimms, whereas a P4 board with 4 dimms is now commonplace

i think i might have finally decided on a mobo/proc combo (i might even get the case they have) http://www.partspc.com/Recommend.php?ID=3 its soooo cheap and a really good deal (i just found out i needed a raid controller built onto the mobo) and i can get the 512k northwood core upgrade for only $15

and at only $405 for the mobo, proc, heatsink and fan, case w/ a 400 watt power supply, 2 year warranty, pretest and 512k northwood core i cant really beat that deal

if you go with P4 it is usually a lot easier to find motherboards for it, I would have just gone with the P4

If i would build a computer with current prices i'd put either a 2.8 GHZ or a 3.0 GHZ P4 in it - The 3.2 GHZ ones are about double the price of 3 GHZ!

yeah anything over 2.6GHz is a bit ridiculous still, but the reason im buying such a good mobo is cuz i want to be able to put a 3.2GHz chip in it when they come down, and that one will support any chip w/ a 800MHz FSB

I'd never get a 3.2 GHZ at current prices, the online sore closest to us has them at $1200 (Aussie dollars)
