Thanks for all the input!
  • It seems that SiS chipsets are in the majority for the 'best for the buck' category. Intel seems to be overpriced (yet more stable) and VIA, even I know, has had problems. Question:

    What's the major difference between SiS 645DX and SiS 648?
  • Also seems that DDR is favored over RDRAM. That is what I figured would happen. Question: Since they changed the naming scheme from pc133/150/166 (effective speed) to PC2100/PC3100 (bandwith), i am all confused. I never bothered to learn the naming scheme and what bandwiths relate to their speeds. How will I know which to couple with whatever chip i purchase?
  • Was the 2.53Ghz combo you found that was cheaper than the 2.4Ghz a fluke? The prices seem to be higher for 2.53Ghz barebones on the average, from what I've seen anyway.

pc1600 = 100mhz ddr
pc2100 = 133mhz ddr
pc2700 = 166mhz ddr

Anything above that I'm not sure what the speed is, jedec has only set standards up to pc2700 so far.
