Okay, Well i wouldn't mind get a 2.2ghz Northwood P4 and the box says have an earily christmas.

I'm happy with what I won. I don't think I'd want a P4, as in 3DSMAX which is what I mainly do, it plain out sucks. GO AMD!!

How do you know the FPU is fixed? Raystonn hasn't said anything about this for certain, even though it's obvious he's been playing with one for quite some time.
And remember that it still has 8k of L1. Northwood will be interesting, but I'm not sure HOW interesting.

What kind of board are you going to slap that thing on?

I have no idea. What I may do is request to pay 20$ and get a 1.4 Ghz (they should agree, right?). Then I'll get a kt266a when it comes out, and 1024 MB DDR, then give my current AMD761 1.2 Ghz, 512 DDR to my little brother (he's 5- let's see how disney games run on that:) )

They may or may not, but I don't think you are really going to notice that much of a difference.

Hey, compared to teh 200Mhz P1 he currentl uses, I think he'll be happy. Is Infineon RAM any good? I saw 512 MB cas 2.5 (I'll oc it to 2) at 90$.

Infinion is fine memory.

Just a thoguth, instead og giving back the CPU to AMD and paying an extra $20 for the 1.4......

Why don't you go witht hat $20 and pick up the cheapest Duron CPU u can find, put that in ur existing AMD761 rig and than take the two 1.2's u have and buy a Tyan Dual board and stick 'em in there ?? =) im sure ur little bro would still appreciate the power of a Duron over a P1...LoL let alone the Duron isnt really that bad anyways =) and u can even OC that...so yea =) Just a thought...
