well id love to snag a prescott with the larger cache AND the 800mhz fsb, but those are somewhat pricey, a 2.8ghz prescott with the above options is at least 160, then you gotta get a heatsink/fan to cool that ****.
the 2.4 options i mentioned are about 120, i know its only 40 bucks, but if i start in with the "oh this is only x amount more than this" ill end up throwing all my money away
and besides the CPU is probably the least of my worries as far as speed, so i can take the extra 40 bucks and spend it on a video card! unless i change my mind my rig is as follows:
2.4 ghz Pentium 4 with HTing and 800mhz FSB
1gb PC-3200 in dual-channel
Western Digital 80gb SATA hard drive
thats the important stuff anyway, my case was cheap, looks pretty cool though IMO, everything will be cheap or snagged off other machines
