Hello Everybody
I have decided to upgrade my current PC, an Athlon XP 2000+/256 MB PC-133/Win XP SP1/HD WD 40 GB 5400 RPM. As you can see that's a pretty lame system. I have saved some money to upgrade but I'm not sure which Athlon 64 CPU to use. Any suggestions would be appreciated !!

Of course I want something that won't be absolete with the next Atlon CPU release next month

I suppose you do realise that you need a new motherboard, memory and CPU, right? An A64 3000+ should be great for anything you do.

<b>Well, AMD is 3 letters while INTEL is 5 letters. Also, AMD starts with an A but INTEL starts with an I. And finally, their last difference is that AMD ends with a D, while INTEL ends with an L.</b>

The RAM of yours is the most lame though.

Replace it with something from Corsair, OCZ or GEIL.
