I used it mostly for 3D Max and Photoshop, maybe some games like Diablo 2.
So which one P4 1.7G or Athlon 1.4G ?
What I want to know is which of the two is more stable ? That is Windows doesn't crash too many times ? Performance also taken into consideration but if it crash alot than its no use
I heard all the good review about Athlon, but I never build an Athlon system before, I heard it takes abit more experience, since Athlon doesn't have thermal diode, in case I stuff up. Is Athlon system more stable and more hassle free than P4 ?
I don't mind spending money, if it is well spend, but I hate spending money on garbage. Especially RDRAM ?
Is P4 all that bad or is it RDRAM is the caused ??
They both will perform so close you'll probably never see the difference except for a slight difference in benchmarks. The athlon gives you more for your $. If you want you can buy bundles which include the cpu and fan already installed from
