I am starting this thread after being co-inspired by Grizley1 and FUGGER to do it so we can share the blame later on (JK).

If there is a need to move this post later fine but my question is:

Which x-86 compatible CPU is in the computer that you feel is your's (i.e. your home computer not your work computer)?

Reply to this post by saying:

AMD

or:

Intel

That's all I want to see, no flame wars, no comments about heat, incompatibility and price, no double posting (even though I can't police this if you do) and when I feel that there is a fair representation of the population on Tom's Forums, I will post another thread with the results.

Let the battle begin with my signature!

T-Bird 800Mhz
2X IBM 75GXP 30GB in RAID0 config
Geforce2 32MB
SB Live

3 AMD's (K6-III, K6, and 5x86-133)
3 Intel's (PIII, PII, Tilamook Pentium [Mobile Pentium MMX])
January 31, 2001 4:56:42 PM

4 Intels.
(But before anyone can begin to think that I favor one company over the other, I'd like to point out that one is a 486, one is a 133, one is a 166MX, and one was an ultra-cheap "get this the heck out of our inventory" sale Celeron 500. I'm still waiting to purchase what I'd consider to be a computer that I'm actually happy with.)

Does an Alpha count if it's running x86 emulation software?

2 x Intel:

486 SX @ 25 Mhz (impossible to overclock) - useful for typing, solitaire and so on... I don't usually use it, my parents use it

Pentium MMX 200 Mhz @ 225-250 Mhz - that's in my room

My new system will have dual Morgans unless Intel shows me some kind of supa-Celerons or ultra cheap P!!!
January 31, 2001 10:07:01 PM

I have 2 machines at home, the x86 is a CUSL2 with a P3 800E overclocked w/winME.

I also use a SGI O2 w/QED RM5200 IRIX 6.5 at home.

My work pc is a SGI Zx10 w/ 866 P3 NT2000 pro.with the matrox G450.

Actually it sucks. It gets beaten by any 133MHz FSB based machine. And the small cache really sucks.
It DOES do some things really fast, like booting up windows... -and it was dead-cheap anyway...

* intel P166 (who cares)
* intel P3-500 (got it from my work)
* just ordered a Thinderbird 900
The real question should be:
what CPU did you buy over the last 18 months ? Those are the CPU's that are likely to generate new posts on this forum. I dont think I'll need a lot of help setting up my old P166 that hasnt been open in over a year.
