AMD's Athlon 64 FX-51 had a very short lived life, the final nail in its coffin being the Athlon 64 3400+ at around half its price and offering all its performance. We also take a more thorough look at the Newcastle based Athlon 64 3000+ and crown a new price/performance leader. And you thought the Pentium 4 2.8C was a great buy...
Man, things are moving faster and faster and cheaper and cheaper. It tends to confuse this oldster because about the time I make a decision (no mean feat for me) to upgrade to a specific proc/mobo combo I read about something else. :=(Gettin' tired. Nap now. ;-)
This is good for me, because in about 6 months I'll have graduated with a Masters degree and hopefully have a job - which is about when using my current computer (athlon 1 gig) will become too slow for my liking.
