    well im all confused now that the nforce2 motherboard is looming - i was all intel baby - lets face it my 1.8 is clearly - faster agaist ? what the fastest amd on the market the xp2200 - which is gulp...1.8 - intel goes up to 2.53 baby with 3.0 by the end of the year

    NOW I WONT BUY A 3.0 - THATS FOOLS MONEY - BUT I WAS LEANING TO A 2.26 W/512 CACHE TO GET AHOLD OF THE 533 FSB ACTION - AND REALLY 2.26 BY THE END OF 2002 IS REALLY MIGHTY

    now theres the confusing part - it is my destiny to build a killer - possibly portable shuttle system - with a nforce2 - with a amd 1700 athlon xp right now till the k8's drop - with ddr400 support agp4x a 333fsb(how come they claim to be the first yet intels are 'higher'? sorry im dumb)usb 2.o 5.1 surround and a gforce4mx built in - seriously thats incredible stuff with a K8 and a around oh a GB of pc3200 ram

    can anyone help me decide - or talk me in or out of the shuttle pc idea- im not into wasting money! besides my video card cost more than a damn xbox or ps2 so i want my games and apps to bleed of that fat 19' black cabinet flat display monitor

    1600x1200x32 till we 1600x1200x64

    Well actually the Athlon XP 1800+ was sluggin' it out with the old 2GHz P4 and only since Intel jumped to the 533MHz FSB did they jump ahead of AMD so ya a bit out there, but I did post a reply to this question that ya posted elsewhere. ;)

    The XP2200+ kills the p4 1.8 in every single benchmark you can name most by a good %20 or more. IMO nForce 2 is a waste of time, you are never going to have a performance system w/ onboard video so forget about it
