Otherwise, I've got half the parts for the next PC. If everything goes well, it'll last me another 6 years or so...

i still have some most are 4meg but i think i have some 16's

Do you mean 5 1/4" floppy drive, or the older 8" floppy?

My mobo accepts both 3.3v and 5v EDO ram, but not in combination

From the stats I see. i noticed AMD is used 28 to Intels 12.
since this is an overclockers forum.. why...
i was planning to buy a new system.. Intel of course but since there are so mnay more people using AMD... why?
does it out perform Intel once overclocked? better bang for the buck?
I have heard of the crushed core stories... (i imagine it would be for the more amature users that would do that). and how the MB can be cooked with CPU if it overheats.
never any of the above problems with Intel CPU's.

so why the die hard AMD users.

can a dedicated intel person like myself be converted to AMD?
lets see... anybody want to try to convince me?

unfortuntaly i will be going away for a week..
but i'll check back when i get back

I'm running 2 XP 2100+ at 2600+ speed (2.1ghz), one stock 1800+ pally, and a P4M 1.8.

My reason for AMD is simple- price/performance. A 2.4C would perform much better, and overclock much better. But it still wouldn't pass the performance of both procs combined, despite the price being the same. The motherboards are a pretty good deal too.

The other reason, also very important, is the extra FPU. this means clock for clock, AMDs are MUCH better at things like F@H. Pretty important to me since half of my boxes are folding, without monitors, keyboards, or anything....
