Hey guys, I have a question I need answered for my system upgrade I am currently running a Athlon 1800 xp and Im definate that its time for an upgrade, but I am really getting confused by the whole athlon deal I read the sticky post above and searched but couldnt really find the right answer. First of all, Im thinking about getting either the Athlon 64 3200+ or 3400+. But I am curious as to how fast it actually is, I hate the fact that everyone is using number which is not reflecting their actual processing speed. Will 400 fsb and 800 fsb really make that big of a diff? what else to look for? With the new processer I will need a new motherboard, what do you guys think of either the K8V SE Deluxe or the K8N-E Deluxe? I am really looking for a board that supports SATA so that I can buy a few SATA compatible HDs any questions, comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
