I just order a AMD 64 3400 2.4Gig and a MSI K8N NEO PLatinum and I have been running a Moblie XP2600 at 2.4Gig at 12 x 200.Both processors will be running the same speed.I going to do some benchmarks and see how big of a difference the AMD 64 does.

There are benches around the web with A64 3400. Check those out and they will offer performance increase. I dunno if the 3400 is clocked at 2,4 ghz? I thought only the fx 53 and A64 3800 were clocked at 2.4Ghz

the 3700+, 3800+ and fx53 are all clocked @ 2.4ghz... not the 3400+

wrt performance increase... most likely it will be a marginal increase in many areas... multi-tasking and gaming should be better as should apps usage and media encoding but general usage should not be much different...

don't expect a massively ginormous visible increase... you may be disappointed...

They have two 3400 64's one clocked at 2.4 g with 512 cache and the other is 2.2g with 1meg of cache.

well I'll be :D

didn't know they had snuck another one in there @ a higher clock...

thanks for setting it straight :)

I hope I not dissapointed after spending this much to me anyway,but all the reviews I have seen with a moblie 2500 clocked at 2.4g, the AND64 3400 beat it by a pretty good magrin in nearly ever game and that what I will use it for is gameing.Plus I kept hearing that to get the full or better potenial out of the 6800ultra I needed a better processor.

Trust me, you will get a NICE performance boost. My CPU equals or beats a 3.2ghz P4 on my tests, I know I beat my roommates 2.8ghz P4 hardcore.

You've got nothing to worry about. Went from a Barton 2500+ to a64 3200+ myself back in May. The biggest diff in regards to games you should notice is that they run incredibly "smooth". The most noticable perf boost personally experienced w/ a64 cpus is while encoding. Still can't believe how fast this thing rips through cds/dvd. Naturally you're limited to the max speed of your optical drives but cpu does do a lot of work.
