    I don't think so as this looks very good (even if at 2.7GHz). ;)

    But it's absolutely lousy at doin' SETI w/u's still though doin' 15mins better than the Server now. :?:

    Right I've just finished the two "show ponies" and the AMD comes in $7.60aus over the P4.

    In the green corner is my favourite (in a very short time I tell when it consistantly does SETI w/u's in less than 2.5hrs. :thumb:

    Athlon XP2600+ 333DDR @ 2.25GHz (at this stage)
    Volcano 7+
    EPoX 8RDA+
    UNEEC windowed case
    128MB AGP8x GF4 Ti4200 My VIVO
    512MB Corsair XMS3500 (2 x 256MB sticks)
    Samsung 40x12x40x CDRW
    WD JB400


    and in the blue corner weighin' in at an unpopular choice so far is

    Intel P4 2.4GHz 533QDR FSB @ 2.7GHz (the CPU seems to be at it's limit here)
    Volcano 7+
    Gigabyte 8PE667 Pro
    UNEEC windowed case
    128MB AGP8x GF4 Ti4200 My VIVO
    512 MB Corsair XMS3200
    LiteOn 48x24x48x CDRW
    WD JB400


    Sorry Intel but for what I do the AMD just does it better. Here's a couple of shots of early benchies to compare to the P4's above but I'll post final scores for the AMD a bit later. ;)

    180MHz/360DDR FSB

    Just amazin' what 14MHz will do the FSB. :woot:
    The XMS-3500 is set as aggressively as the BIOS will allow for both FSB settings though Vmem is 2.73v and Vcore 1.725v plus it's crunchin' SETI w/u's out 30-35mins quicker than the P4 already. :D
