I don't have to wait for DDR 400 to come along to keep up with RDRAM 1066. All I need is my latest upgrade it's a Epox 4G4A+ that has the P4 845G chipset and has the DDR 333 and the 533 system bus. Now when you slap a 2.26 P4 in with Corsair 3200 DDR and set the system bus to 164Mhz and it is X 4 you get a bus running at 656 and your DDR running at 407Mhz and a 2.77 P4. That's what I have, and I get great results now without waiting for DDR 400 to come along. And the thing I really like about this board is the it has a setting for the AGP/PCI bus so that no matter how high you turn up the bus speed it will stay at 66/33(if you want it to that is) which helps out alot when you are looking for system stability. I love AMD but right now have to go with Intel if you want the fastest system out there without paying alot and alot of extra cooling + you don't need to go with RDRAM to be fast you can go with DDR.

DDR400 is already out, overclock you bus further and take advantage of it!

Default amd!!!!!!!!

I have heard about a "revision" to the TBred that AMD is working on. Its supposed to have a 333 FSB, and come out at 2.0ghz and 2.13(pr 2400+, 2600+). If those are the barton cores coming out, they will also have 512L2 cache. AMD is supposed to be having great success with them.

hurray for AMD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

currently that's a rumor
Hope it's true though. AMD has been kind of idle for the past few months.

Well, I've been AMD all the way since the first socketed Athlons came out, but the newest P4's finally induced a switch. I just ordered an Epox 4G4A+ and P4 1.8a. I should get it Thur. or Fri. I'll let ya know how it compares to my current A7N266-E/AthlonXP 1700+ setup.

For some reason.. Intel just comes off a big Dictatorship company who doesnt listen to its userbase.

I wouldnt ever spend $650 on a CPU.
Dont get me wrong, I would definetely like a P4 2.5ghz at the moment, but I wouldnt buy one unless I had lots and lots of money to burn.

The top of the line Athlon chipset right now costs about 70% less than the top of the line Pentium, but you sure as hell arent getting 70% more performance out of the Pentium.

Ill stick with AMD.

I have been an AMD fan for a long time ever since the k6233 but the latest P4's also provoked a change in my system. The overclockability of the 1.8A for instance is AWESOME to say the least. Also if u can reach 2.4 with a 1.8A with stock cooling/thermal grease, why would u get an AMD and also now that DDR is a viable option with the P4 makes it even more appealing and finally there are some low cost DDR chipsets a.k.a. SiS645dx(replaced with 648) that give new meaning to the word bang for the buck and there are the 845 boards etc......

I am lost...if a 1.73ghz Athlon XP w/ DDR =~ 2.4ghz P4 w/ DDR in overall performance why is a $120 1.6ghz P4 (oc'd to 2.4ghz) so much better than a $100 1.67ghz Athlon XP (oc'd to 1.73ghz)??? Can someone explain this?

Actually it does not compete entirely. The P4 has the 533Mhz bus advantage, it runs cooler, the system is a lot quieter and the 1.73 AMD does not perform as well as a P4 2.4(533 Bus).
