Hi new here,
Duron 1G @ 1.2,
AMD was just easier on my pocket at the time.
Yes the are!
Those duron's were about the best value around for a long while, they're a great bang-for-buck! I was mighty tempted by them more than a few times.
My main box has a Celeron 700mhz and my laptop has an Athlon4 1.1ghz. Needless to say the laptop overpowers the main box by a longshot
Pssssh, AMD is always easier on the pocketbook.
As far as my household... 1.4GHz Thunderbird, 1.1GHz Duron, 800MHz Duron, 450MHz K6-2, a P4 1.6A, and a Pentium 66.
The P66, obviously, was bought a long time ago. It wasn't my choice. And I built the P4 system to sell, not for my own use.
I have two P4 1.8Ghz processors and one P3 800Mhz processor.
Not always. If you're building a computer from scratch, then yeah, but if you're looking to upgrade, it depends on what you're upgrading. I just paid $115 for a 1 GHz Pentium 3. Show me where I can get a comperable motherboard, DDR RAM, and an AMD certified power supply.. not to mention a CPU all for that price and I'll cancel my order right now.
Shiiit, you aren't trying hard enough!
ECS K7S5A - $54
AMD Athlon 1.1GHz - $66.00
That board allows you to use both PC133 or PC2100. It will take XPs, and I've yet to read a negative thing about it. I've owned two, and they are stellar. As for the powersupply, if you've got one that can drive a P3 1GHz, it'll handle an Athlon 1.1GHz. If you absolutely NEED a AMD certified 300W'er, you can nab one for $27.00.
So, that's $120 without powersupply and $147 with.
Don't be lame. If you're going to be an AMD hater, at least be a hater for a real reason. Be like "I'm buying Intel 'cause AMD's are too hot!" like all the other Intel fanboys.
althon 1.33 t-bird here...
now P4 1.5G
And for those of us who have more than one system, and perhaps more than one brand of CPU?
I have 3 Athlons, 2 AMD Kx-xxx, and 8 Intel boxes (PPro, P1,PII, PIII,). Oh, and add a Sun box, trio of Amigas, C-64, TRS-80, and a few others... or do I vote 13 times?
Well, if I did decide to go AMD (which I probably will when I build my next computer anyway), I would go all out. I don't want no stinking SDRAM holding my system back. Boards that take both are cool and all, but it limits me in terms of future upgrades (I tend to like to have ALL my RAM slots filled ). As for the power supply, don't AMD boards have a different power connector for the motherboard? Granted, I could probably find an adaptor for my 300W power supply, but once again, if I was building myself a brand new system, I'd rather go all out.
I got a Athlon 1600 @1.4ghz.
I have an Athlon XP 1800+ @ 1711, a PIII 600 /100fsb @ 6x133=800 (wife's comp), and this funky PIII in a PII 440LX chipset mobo...
hope it's okay to post a link to another forum...
Athlon XP 1500+
Mac 450 G4
Ain't life sweet!
I have an XP 1700+ right now but I previously owned a p4 1.7ghz. Both are great chips.
Athlon XP 1600+
el pene del toro
anyway, intel all the way, except a duron/mobo/ram combo I got for 130 bucks on sale. AMD just doesn't have the right *feel* for me, I don't know how to explain it but they just feel different.
