    Whats the stepping on your 1800? Tbred A or B core?

    If it's a good one you could get a new motherboard, say A7N8X or NF7 and clock it up to 3200+ speeds and beyond. That would be pretty inexpensive.

    Off hand, I'd say save your cash and build a 64-bit processor based system with PCI-Express. Then you'll be set for a while :thumb:. : peace2: Mista K6

    -400MHz FSB i850 Intel mobo
    -P4 Williamette Socket 478, 1.9GHz
    -768MB 16-bit PC800 RDRAM
    -MSI GF4 Ti4200 128MB @ 284/581
    -7200 RPM Maxtors: 60GB (2MB) on mobo and 160GB (8MB) on ATA/133 PCI Card
    -Creative Inspire T7700 7.1 Speaker System on an Audigy 2
    -Windows XP Home Edition SP2

    Rock on : peace2: , MiStA K6
