  1. What are people's opinions on what CPU is good for the price? I was think of upgrading to a Barton 2500+ since this has been the deal since I can remember. Its still a deal yes? :confused:

    Barton 2500+ is definitely the best lower end CPU you can get. Newegg has them for $86 :eek: ($91 for retail)

    Yep 2500+ is best bang-for-buck without a doubt, and its still a fantastic CPU :D

    Depending on your motherboard and RAMs ability to handle it, I think the XP2600/333 is the top of the pricebreak, after that there's a bit of a jump in pricing.
