    reply: amd is doing away with the duron processors so the t-bird is going to be the low end of amd's ladder now.the t-bird will leave the celeron in a trail of dust out the tailpipe of the cpu.celerons days are numbered i believe.with the xp chips not but twenty dollars more here in the states i don't think there is any room for the lower end like they used to be.which would you choose a t-bird for 99 dollars and you have to have a pretty good size cpu fan or a xp chip that runs fine with the boxed processor fan .i run the 1600 xp at 1.51ghz on a stock fan and it screams.intels 1.6 northwood is the better deal of all there processors they can be had for 145 dollars and with a 20 dollar custom fan we are fetting almost 2 ghz out of the 1.6 not bad results so where does that leave the celeron's?the dells,gateways,hp's compaq's will use the celerons but i don't think many custom builders are going to choose the budget processors things have changed from the days when you could buy a 300 celeron and get 550-600 out of it.the celeron's of today don't overclock as well at least i haven't had the luck i used to and the Xp cpu's can be unlocked and ran a lot faster .i don't think they will last as long as unclocked one's but as fast as the hardware is advancing i change spu's at least once a year and i don't see the industry slowing down at all as far as developement of faster speed is concerned.

    umm.. you might wanna check your facts there...

    Thunderbirds are extinct. They stopped production late last year. They are almost impossible to get now.. Durons are AMD's budget CPU now...

    For now. AMD is gonna can the Duron line and offer cheaper Athlons as I understand.

    Yeah, the T-bird is not in production anymore, like Beefy said. The XP's are the Athlon right now. Like, duh:geek:

    You will not see the end of the "Duron" line (whether DuronXP or Duron64 or whatever they could call it) for a long time. It's AMD's bargain line. Whether its a Barton or a Spitfire core, it's gonna be a Duron to the public. Things may change in Hammer-land, but thats not til the end of the year or later.

    Durons are very cool to me, since i've decidedly lately that spending a minimum on a good system to OC is my best bet, and then throwing the rest of my money into the car. The last two procs i've personally purchased were durons, even thou i still run an Athlon 800 in this particular PC.
