    >>2.07GHZ.
    One of the AMD at @ghz-ish is supposed to almost match a P4 3.06. I dont remember which one or if that was with Hyperthreading but thats still a nice setup.

    The GeForce FX 5900 are nice. "450MHz core clock", "850MHz Memory Data Rate", "27.2 GB/sec. memory bandwidth". The price is kind of high though, but you did save alot.


    My next dream desktop will have dual Xeons and onboard 320 SCSI

    >>4 of them but i can ask later.
    Dam, id didnt know there was 4. I wonder if some are around here...

    Yea he got into them through his school, then he graduates the classes into pencotech the 27th.

    The XP3600 is the 3.06GHZ, but its up there in costs. I'm thinking bout getting the 256MB Ultra 5900. ill be paying 450 but im still saving alot.

    Or you could get a Radeon 9800 Pro...
    Well, there are a few things wrong with your code:

    1) It does not work.
    2) It does not work.
    3) It does not work.

    Hope this helps.

    ...

    I just got asus fx5600 and asus wasn't selling them with 256... though I saw them at newegg... with the sticker over an old one.... ie it's not an official card meaning no warranty for him.

    http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp?style=album

    look closely at the sticker

    You mean XP3200?

    In the realm of the overclockers, many people have 3200's but very few have pain the high prices for them. A 2500+ for less than $100 will do 3200 speeds quite easily, and even a large number of 1700+'s (though different core) will do 3200+ speeds easy for less than $50, but those specific steppings are becoming quite hard to find.


    What do you mean by "250.00 built."? Do you mean that entire pc only cost you $250 ?!?!
