Temp CPU until Barton...
 
I'm looking to purchase a good CPU between now and the middle to end of October when the first Barton-core CPU's are out. Without taking a dive performance wise, what CPU would be best to last until the Barton CPU's start making into stores?

I've been looking into overclocking ability, resale value, etc....

Right now, the XP2000 looks good....any thoughts?

I've heard great things about the 2000+, I personally have an 1800+ and I love it. It hits the speeds that the 2000+ hits, and is cheaper. But with the recent price drops with AMD's line, the 2000+ sounds like a good investment.

I too am looking for the cheapiest possible Athlon XP till the Clawhammer comes out. This Duron is killing me!

I'd guess the 2000+ would be great. I haven't had experience with the 1800+ and overclocking, but if what netviper's saying is true for most of them, that's a great deal. My 2100+ is running at 1845Mhz (using loads of aircooling, courteousy my Swiftech MCX-462) stable as can be, with temps hovering around 40-42C even under full load.

(I can't wait to get my hands on a Barton to replace it, lol.)

Before I heard about the 2400+ and the 2600+, I had planned to purchase a 1600+ after auctioning off my 900MHz Athlon; now, I plan to get an 1800+ (see my sig for why I'm aiming so low).

Hey guys I don't know which CPU's you have but go out and buy XP1600+ for 50 in the UK, or 60 oor so $$$ whatever it is in the US. On Hardforums people are speaking of hitting 1900 mhz with this CPU :eek:

And many of them more than 1700 soo this is the cheap /overclockable/ temp CPU that I am getting as well for the time being :D

Here in the US, newegg has the XP2000+ for $95.....I think I'm going to go that route....

:D

streetprices has Googlegear selling the XP 1800+ for $72.....

:D :)

I suggest going 1600+, as well, provided you get the right stepping.

Let me show you why:

"Yeah no kidding! I had an incident (ie: being a dumbass) with my AGKGA 1600+ so I ordered another one from Newegg to replace it. Got an AGOIA Y 0213 and it did 1811 on stock voltage! I almost crapped myself! Now it's purring along at 1930! I didn't order it becuase of the stepping, it was actually before this thread was even start"

Look in various AMD forums and you'll see reports similar to that one above (not mine). Amdmb, for one. There are dozens and dozens of reports of these CPUs (1600+'s) hitting *at least* 166 times their multiplier (10.5), which gives you 2100+ speed. And they are trying to get rid of them everywhere, so they're 55 bucks in most places.

If you're going to have a board capable of 333 fsb and memory capable of running it at good CAS levels, then I don't see why one would get the higher rated 2000 or 2100 when the 1600 can do it for you for half the money.

Of course, you have to find the right stepping. AGOIA or AROIA. And the next line should start with a Y. Those CPUs are based on the stepping that the 2000+ and 2100+ were based on and so that is typically their rated speed.

Just food for thought. The real question for me isn't whether to get a Palomino higher than 1600, but whether I should wait for a 2400+ to overclock (which is based on the revised T-bred core and should be an even better overclocker) or go with this 55 buck (1/3rd the price before that other CPU even launches) CPU. I remain undecided.
