XP 1700+: Buy now or wait?

  1. Is now a good time to buy a new motherboard and XP processor? I've been absent from, "I know the latest hardware crowd" for almost a year that I don't even know what PC3000 memory is.

    I have a budget of $150 and I want to get at least a XP 1700+. Whatever is left is for the motherboard.

    Prices on the AthlonXp chips are gonna get a cut very soon ( & it's a pretty hefty cut too ) -> New AMD Prices

    You might want to wait unitl the AMD Hammer comes out because I am sure that the XP's will drop in price.

    i would say wait. $150 isnt alot for an upgrade like a processor, motherboard, and ram. Wait to get more cash and get the best motherboard and plenty of ram, or wait until the next set of processors come out.

    Do you have a link to the translator and how it works? I am familiar with Google search...use it all the time...not familiar with the translator. Thanks for the post.
