does the athlon 1.4ghz have a significant performance increase over the 1.3? is it worth the extra $35 it costs? im trying to keep my costs down but if it will make a big difference then ill go for the 1.4
... lol i don't think you will notice a difference between 1300mhz and 1400mhz to be honest.
I recently bought the 1.33(266) cpu thats because the difference between 1000 and 1330 was about 30 dollars lol so that was worth the extra 30 bucks... but an extra 35 bucks from 1300 to 1400 not worth it i think. get the 1.33 (266) @ axiontech.com for 135! it is the ayhja stepping to and should overclock the same as the 1400 version since they are both the same stepping and you save like 40 bucks.
If you plan to overclock, get the 1.4 almost all 1.4's can hit 1.6 with air cooling and minimal fuss, but if not, 1.33 is fine(and will pretty much do 1.46 by changing the multiplier and nothing more). Either way you are set.

I purchased the 1.0ghz AXIA RETAIL. I overclocked it to 1.323 using the stock HSF (I can go higher if I don't mix my current RAM). Idle temps around 40 celcuis, load around 55 celcius. The stock HSF isn't all that bad. Actually the heatsink is pretty good, its the fan that sucks.
