    Well, I guess that explains the price cut on current Athlons yesterday. Now you can get a XP2000 for just $A235 :)

    That should be around 3 times faster than slot A Athlon 700?

    webe3,
    Ren is from Australia. Their dollar value is roughly half of ours. After figuring in shipping and tariffs, you'd be looking at a price increase if ordered from NewEgg.com

    Wiggo Now AMD is really starting to be interesting. What MB's would you recommend that would give the maximum OC potential?

    Any of the better KT333 boards shouldn't be a prob other than maybe a BIOS flash. Remember that these are still officially a 266MHz FSB CPU's so some KT266A boards would also be quite ok.
    With the KT400 chipset just being released I don't really think will this chipset will offer anymore performance advantage over the KT333 for these particular CPU's as the bandwidth is more than can be used. The new speed of the V-Link (2x) connection may make a little impression though in different areas.

    Officially 266, but are they likely to be able to be pushed to 333?

    Yes rather easily in some cases, it will be better when they workout the proper combination for unlocking these T'bred B's. ;)

    Intel has some competition again. :D

    Are the lower Athlons (1800+ through 2100+) getting replaced by Tbred A or B?
