    Is it a good idea to wait for the Athlon 64 before upgrading or at the release date it will be too expensive?? Will it compare to the high end parts like the 3200+ and big mobo or will it be more like buying a 1500$ system now??

    I probably shoult trade my TNT 2 32 meg for something faster, that would help alot!! (1800 3D mark 2001 SE)lol

    I think A64 will be the high-end desktop, and the 32-bit Athlons will be the value segment. AMD won't be just dropping the 32-bit platform the instant A64 is out.

    yeah, i guess when athlon 64 comes out, what I will probly end up doing is buying myself a nice high end xp, since they will go down in price.

    the latest and greatest mobo and cpu (and ram) will probably be too expensive for me.

    The Opteron seems to have already outsold Intels Itanic 2 in the time it's been available.
    WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INFO? www.iloveamd.com or what!?
    no flippin way opteron outsold itanium2 ALREADY i wont argu over performance though. i seen easily over 50,000 itaniums in one building i was wireing no way amd can pump out that kind of numbers (i was wireing a datacenter btw)
    asfor intel 64bit, i dont think there gona, not yet, they might have something on the backburner, cuz 32bit prog. operate like **** on itaniums. u only NEED 64bit for cad and 'thinking' programs, where they hypothisis situations, like a plaincrash or something. i doubt 64bit will provide any sort of performance increase another 500mhz couldnt fix. not to mention u need registerd ecc dimm's with nforce 3 PRO's there expensive and dont OC worth a ****.
    another solutiuon amd should increased R&D on is the athlon MP, i think that was a winning idea.they had 4ghz last year with that.

    Intel is not switching to 64 bit anytime soon. Their current lineup for the next couple years will be moving from Prescott to Tejas. They won't be working on a completely new architecture and 64 bit until at least a few more years...

    Malabooboo: The KT880 is Via's answer the Nvidia Nforce2 Ultra 400 chipset.

    VIA KT880 to Leave NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400 Behind?

    VIA Technologies had confirmed its plans to roll-out the fastest core-logic for AMD Athlon XP with up to 400MHz FSB processors and to leave NVIDIA’s nForce2 Ultra 400 core-logic behind in terms of performance, Taiwanese DigiTimes web-site reported. The company is rumoured to release its KT880 product in late September or early October with probably demonstration of the part during Computex 2003 trade-show.

    As the brand name suggests, the new core-logic from VIA with dual-channel memory controller inherits many features and capabilities from similar PT880 chipset for Intel Pentium 4 processors, primarily PC2700 and PC3200 support in dual-channel configurations as well as VIA VT8237 I/O controller, supporting up to 6 PCI slots, 8 USB 2.0 ports, 2-channel ATA-33/66/100/133 controller, 4 Serial ATA-150 ports, 6-channel audio-solution, MC’97 modem and other important input/output capabilities, and may be considered as we even more feature-rich than nForce2 MCP-T from NVIDIA.

    It seems that VIA Technologies has plans to bring itself its leading positions in the core-logic market back and is now very aggressive both in terms of product announcements and promotion. As we know, many mainboard makers adopt VIA’s affordable PT800 core-logic and even outdated P4M266 chipset these days, thus, I assume that VIA’s dual-channel PT880 may be welcomed very warmly by mainboard makers. We may suggest that VIA’s dual-channel should be a very effective one given that it was in development for quite some time now and the actual products were postponed more than twice in the past.

    Unfortunately for VIA, the era of Socket A as a powerful platform is rapidly approaching its sunset and there are concerns that the KT880 core-logic may become massively successful nowadays (see this news-story for more details).

    Personally I'm going to wait for the 939 pin Dual Channel systems to come out, then go for DDR2, PCI-Express etc... Probably the end of next year when everything starts to settle down, and prices get sensible.
