    WOW Albinus, now that's a recommendation! But like I always say to P4 fans, "we were all intel fans, in the begining....."

    I6, as alway, where's your system spec's?

    also, what are you looking to replace? just the cpu, whats your board?........are U looking to replace board and cpu? or upgrade what U have?

    also, what do U want rig to do? be a gamer, 3mp priate rig, etc. Do U want to flash the locals with a hot rig, or are U on a budget?

    more info needed?

    with what you've asked or indicated, I'd advise:

    :rolleyes2 "on a budget: only the cpu..........1.2 Tbird or a 1 g duron."

    :glasses2: "on a budget, but can go a board too: kt266a mobo and an XP1500 and plan to trade up when the XP top ends bargin out a year or so down the road."

    :rolleyes2 : "on a budget but I want :flames: down the road. Invest in a new ddr 333 mobo w/ ata133 and drop a duron or cheap tbird on it for the next 6 months to a year."

    :rolleyes2 : "really I'm a gamer on a budget, for now.......get a Gf 4 mx.

    ;) If U want more advise, be more specific.....

    for the latest CPU's i.e XP2000 or Northwood2.2 - intel is way more expensive.

    But when I spec out a system for the mid-range stuff - XP1700 or 1800 vs. P4 1.7 or 1.8 - I find the difference in cost to be less than $100cdn total on the system.

    I'm not saying to buy a P4.....but the $$$ savings isn't a great as it once was. :rolleyes:

    Thanks guys... i think i'm going to get an amd anthalon xp 1800+

    an assus motherboard k266a.. i can't remember the exact name... but it's a good one, and a gf4 ti4200... :D ... um.. i'm not sure if i should get an audigy x-gamer, that will depend on how much money i have... oh and any recommendations on a case that i should get.. i don't want to spend to much.. but i would like to have 8 bays... the one i found sounds good and is $80 canadian... also i'm going to get a 60gig hard drive... does it really matter which one i get (i going to get a 7200rpm)

    Case.............ya........ check out

    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...ry=1524&DEPA=1

    for cool case #147, they report, but they have been shipping 10 bays. this is a great case, or

    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...ry=1470&DEPA=1

    #4252, several options, including a couple with out PS's if you would like to reuse our current power supply.........

    It would be a good idea to build your new system with a 350w PS.....atleast 300w. the "cool case" comes with one included.....


    good luck,,,,,,,,

    thanks... those look good.. i have a couple of questions.. first.. is this an american site... if so how long do you think it would take to ship it to toronto, canada, and the approximate price of all... if it will be more than $80 canadian... do you think it is still worth it... thanks... oh and i'm referring to the first one you mentioned thanks... the power supply i found for $80 can... is a 300w http://www.yesplay.com/cases.htm it's the one in the middle.

    so my basic question is out of all of these which one do you recommend the most... thanks.. alot.. if you know of any canadian websites that sell similar cases that would be great thanks.
