    ...as well as quantispeed and the (superior) Palomino core.

    That, and you cant buy the TBirds anymore...or its well worth the measly few extra dollars for the said benefits of the Athlon XP.

    My friend is looking at Athlon XP CPUs at the moment, and we were going through pricing. I suggested he buy the 1700+, it seems to be the best value currently. The 1600+ was only $35 cheaper, and the 1800+ was a whopping $190 dearer :eek:

    If your not an overclocker - the 8KHA will probably suit you just fine

    But if your looking for stability @ a 180+FSB & want every last little bit of memory bandwidth - go through the hassle to get the plus, you'll be glad you did

    I've used 2 of the orig. 8KHA's - neither had any issues @ defaults. The second one would not make it through 3DMark if it was overclocked & had some boot up inconsistencies - the first one didn't have any such handicaps, but it fried it's bios chip after about 4mo. of use

    Whether or not you return your's for the plus is up to you
