I'm on ncix.com right now and I'm getting CONFUSED on 2 products..
Looking at
INTEL PENTIUM 4 2.0 A GHZ P4 512K 400FSB S478 NORTHWOOD RETAIL BOX at $629.37 CDN
and
INTEL PENTIUM 4 2.0GHZ P4 256K 400FSB S478 RETAIL BOX at $708.18 CDN

why is the one with 256KB cost an extra $80??? Isn't the Northwood better and newer with the 512KB L2 Cache???

It sounds like the retailer or Intel trying to rip some people off.

Or maybe an error. Probably got the two mixed up. Those vendors usually don't know crap about this stuff...... My personal experiences, have been less than.... ohh satisfactory.

i think intel doesnt want people buying their old P4's...so they raised the price on them...intel would rather have people buy their "better" NW cpu...
but everything i just said (or typed) is a guess...

yep, that's why a 1.4ghz tualatin (512kb) costs more than a p4 2ghz northwood. plus it's production too. i'm sure there are more northwood chips out there than any other intel chip.

I run duals because i multitask between notepad, outlook express and winamp :lol:

Thanks ya'll. Yeah knew the Northwood was better than the regular.. Kinda got me thinking to maybe there was downside on the Northwood than the regular but guess not!
thanks again

Damn those prices are high, here my store has the 2GHZ As at 580$, it's RB Computing www.shoprbc.com . Very nice prices, high quality service and ships to US and Canada within 24-48 hours.
I had the best experience with them.
