I was hoping could recommend simply the fastest motherboard and cpu combo currently available. Thanks

For Intel systems, Asus CUSL2-C (or TUSL2-C) with P-III 1 GHz.
For AMD system, Asus A7M266 with Athlon 1.1 GHz (overclocked to ~1.4 GHz)

I don't know what Girish is smoking, but the absolute fastest Intel would be the P4T from Asus with a 1.8 P4 (or 2GHz if you want to wait for beginning of September).
Fastest AMD would be the Abit KG7 with a 1.4 Tbird.

OK -- you're begging the question!

With money not being an object - which is the fastest?
The AMD offering with the Abit KG7 & 1.4 Tbird OR
The Intel offering with the Asus P4T & 1.8 P4?


1) Stability is paramount
2) I don't want to tweak my life away
3) Which offering will support any future AMD/Intel offerings per their Roadmaps(such as AMD's Palamino and Intel's 2Gig CPU w/ DDRAM)...

Thanks in advance...

1) Is opinion
2) You can tweak as much or as little as you want
3) The ONLY answer to this is AMD

Go for the KG7 and the Tbird

It depend on what software you use. Some software will be faster on Althon and some software will be faster on Pentium 4.

I also thought the price and life of the system.

as far as P4 is concerned today, dont count it.

if its just the MHz, then P4 on P4T it is. But you know that the current P4 s423 is coming to its end. if at all somebody wants to wait, why cant he wait for the Northwood a little longer?

There are already samples of Northwood in its 478 pin microPGA socket, working with the 850 and 845 chipsets, and they are going good.

What about the Tyan K7 with dual 1.4 Tbirds (non MP, I know, but still stable)

what will two 1.4 Tbirds (non MP) will do on the K7 Thunder???

it would be a pretty expensive arrangement for storing a standby processor. bet you will find it whenever you want.

He did!

and is it the 1.8 GHz Pentium 4?

or it is the 1.4 GHz Athlon Thunderbird?

why would you consider a dying processor. wait for mPGA, wait for P4+DDR. and then compare.
