kt266a chipset and like an athlonxp 1600+... extremely cost effective. wanna spend more? get a kt333 board instead and geforce4 ti to go with it...

that's my 2 cents.

Ahhhhhh not another intel/amd. There will be plenty of debate. Doesn't mean much, though. If you have to ask the question, then you won't be able to tell the difference between comparable chips by either maker (as I cannot). But AMD is cheaper. So...

EPoX 8KHA
Soyo Dragon 266 (only diff. between this one and the 333 is that the 333 is tested to work with PC 2700 ;))

AMD Athlon XP 1800-2100, whatever you got the cash for after the mobo.

Go with what you want, what you can afford etc...I'm not gonna slam someone for buying a Pentium, or loving it. Personally, I prefer AMD, being a jobless teen with a low income, AMD's are more affordable.

Processors debates are just like Ford vs Chevy and different kinda of music, just let people use and do what they like and there's no problems.

AMD!...?

I got and AMD 1.3 Ghz Athlon fairly recently, simply because the computer seemed to be a good buy. I like that AMD isn't the mainstream "normal" processor company that Intel is. But I don't really notice a difference or care. It does the job for me...:)

You are kidding right?
AMD is just as Mainstream as Intel in all respects except two, Price and advertising...

AMD processors are (in my opinion) a Better Chip at a lower price.

:D
