    i know it early but whats next after XP?

    how long till we get a 64bit color driving OS that eats up about about 256 mb of ram on its own?


    well im all confused now that the nforce2 motherboard is looming - i was all intel baby - lets face it my 1.8 is clearly - faster agaist ? what the fastest amd on the market the xp2200 - which is gulp...1.8 - intel goes up to 2.53 baby with 3.0 by the end of the year

    NOW I WONT BUY A 3.0 - THATS FOOLS MONEY - BUT I WAS LEANING TO A 2.26 W/512 CASHE TO GET AHOLD OF THE 533 FSB ACTION - AND REALLY 2.26 BY THE END OF 2002 IS REALLY MIGHTY

    now theres the confusing part - it is my destiny to build a killer - possibly portable shuttle system - with a nforce2 - with a amd 1700 athlon xp right now till the k8's drop - with ddr400 support agp4x a 333fsb(how come they claim to be the first yet intels are 'higher'? sorry im dumb)usb 2.o 5.1 surround and a gforce4mx built in - seriously thats incredible stuff with a K8 and a around oh a GB of pc3200 ram

    can anyone help me decide - or talk me in or out of the shuttle pc idea- im not into wasting money! besides my video card cost more than a damn xbox or ps2 so i want my games and apps to bleed of that fat 19' black cabinet flat display monitor

    1600x1200x32 till we 1600x1200x64

    if i remember right doesn't a 64bit os mean that its just the commands sent to your cpu are 64bit and your cpu has to be 64bit? ...

    when you think of speed, your 1.8 would get whooped by the xp 2200+ (both versions)...a fully tweaked xp 2200+ whoops *ss.. you also have to consider how much p4s cost..amazingly crazy prices. if you want 133 quad fsb, then get a 1.6A ghz northwood and o/c to 2.2ghz easy

    on the part of 333fsb, its 166 x 2, see, intel p4s are 100 x 4 or 133 x 4, as you can see, they didn't increase the fsb by much, still 100 or 133 but all they did was quad pump it..somewhat like a "cpu multipler". in the amd case the 166 is the fsb, the fsb increased..not the multiplier, im pretty sure you know that the increase of fsb deals a lot greater performance increase than an increase in multiplier..

    If you're goin' to be using a 64bit os then you will need a CPU that can handle 64bit instructions of course but the latest findings are that it will be years yet before 64bit processing gets out of the server market and work its way thru business till it gets to the home market which is why Intel are working so frantically trying to get "Yamhill" ready to tackle AMD's "Hammer" family as they have realised that their Itanium isn't being accepted in the leaps and bounds that they had wished.
    No 32bit processing is goin' to be with us for quite some time yet. ;)

    Really we're at a confusing point of the year with so much just on the horizon like maybe this, http://forums.tweaktown.com/showthre...&threadid=3801 , but a lot of things should become clearer by Xmas. ;)
