im not looking for most of your standards, im using a 550mhz Athlon K7 right now with 351ram... so anything on the market is pretty much faster. im wondering if my choice is a good one.. AMD Athlon XP2100+ Thoroughbred Tray with MSI KT4VL Mainboard for about 189.99 * #3541764 @ outpost.com * most of you guys diss the Athlon XPs and favor the P4s greatly.[please dont flame up my thread] I dont really know the difference, I just want to have a faster computer than the one i have with a window on the case and some colored lights shining out of it. something i can multitask on, using a few programs at the same time and it can keep up with me. so let me know if i should go P4, or 2100+ thanks.
