    i'm getting a new cpu and mobo together with ram as mine just got struck by lighting.. which 1 is the best in term of cost. i'm looking at p4 2.4/533mhz/s478/512cache without HT. izit ok?

    You should just spend the extra few dollars and get the 800mhz fsb version of the 2.4. You get HT as well with that.

    True! That's a pretty fair performance difference between the two Intel processor types.

    Also, don't rule out an Athlon XP 2700 or a 2800 both with NForce chipsets, since they are both in the price range you're looking at. These are also undeniably more powerful at nearly every task than even the 2.4Ghz Intel with the 800MHz FSB
