I know this is a stuipd question, but i must post it anyways :slurp: Ok, i'm going to be building half of a new computer very soon with my income tax money. when i say half, i mean a new motherboard and cpu (poss video card). I have been looking at the P4's and the athlon 64's. When goign to tomshardware.com and checking them both out they seem to be fairly matched, with a few more benchmarks leading to the p4. However i know the athlon 64's will also be cheaper. So to make the long story short i wanted your guys input on it. If you have an athlon 64 or a P4. I want to spend around $500.00 give or take a little. My current systems is : Pentium 4 2.4 (800FSB) Radeon 9800 Pro (128 meg) 512 Megs of OCZ (ddr500) Soundblaster Live Lite On 12x cd burner Now the computer i'm using now i can't overclock, i'm guessing it's beacuse of the motherboard, damn cheap gigabyte. Anyways the next computer i build i want to overclock. And i have been VERY VERY interested in SLI Interface. All opinions are appreciated !!
