    So....what exactly do you want to know? Which of your processors is the best?
    If that's the question, use your AMD Athlon XP 2600+ CPU. That is 2.13Ghz, not bad. But I'm confused on how you wrote your say that you have 3 different CPUs, then you make it say that they are all 2600+?....
    only 1 of them is, and that's the Athlon XP one...
    If I'm totally wrong here someone correct me.

    amd makes 3 versions of 2600+ the core ?
    XP 2600+ Thorton (L2 256KB) 16.0x133MHz = 2133MHz, WCPUID = 6-10-0,
    XP 2600+ T-bred B (L2 256KB) 12.5x166MHz = 2083MHz, WCPUID = 6-8-1,
    XP 2600+ T-bred B (L2 256KB) 16.0x133MHz = 2133MHz, WCPUID = 6-8-1,
    I'm confused 2 new 2 these systems

    CPU #1 & #3 are basicly the same. #2 is the better performer for it has a faster FSB (even thoughthe clock speed is reduced) but I do not think your motherboard supports it.
