    oh okay, thx for the advice

    or i might as well do what i always been doing :)

    save a few thousand then get the top notch system

    which used to last at least 3 years, then repeat


    but now it would probably last 1 year then repeat

    I once had a Pentium 1 233mmx Cpu that i oc'ed to 300mhz with a massive big cooler on it, which was 100% stable.

    Didn't like booting into windows when i ran it up to 350mhz, tho...

    ALL figures in US Dollars

    Unless money is no issue, Paying top dollar is STUPID. In 3 years, the difference between a 3000$ machine now, and a 1000$ machine now is basically NO DIFFERENCE.


    Proof:

    3 Years ago, a 3000$ machine was:
    PII450 128MB, 32X cd-rom, 8 meg AGP video card, 17inch monitor

    3 Years ago a 1000$ machine was:
    PII233 48MB or ram, 24X cd-rom 4meg AGP. 17inch monitor

    Is there much performance difference there? (compared to whats avaliable now?) The answer is No. Sure, the second one could use an upgrade in ram, and vid card, but that is relativly inexpensive.

    AND JUST THINK... in a year, year and a half down the road... go out and spend another thousand of What was saved... If you kept the monitor, you would be able to get a PIII 900, 256 meg of ram, TNT2 32 meg...!

    AND YOU STILL HAVE SPENT 1000$ less than Person 1, and now you've got double the capability of their computer... AND A Second computer.

    This is assuming you are handy with computers, and know how to buy and install your own components...

    ============

    That is my logic.

    In this day in age, you should not be spending more than 250$ for a processor/mobo combo. I don't understand how you can justify a 400$ processor, only to have it drop in value to 120$ in 6 months.. sheesh.. it comes down to two things, either your really need that added speed(and you can afford it), or your ego really needs some artificial boosting...

    I don't get it.

    But Hey, someones gotta keep paying for R + D....
