Its so fast. the windows pop up the second you click your mouse. I'm sure it will slow down a little when I fill the hard drive with my junk. But right now its super fast. I can't wait to get Windows xp 64bit, it will be even faster then. I paid $282 for the AMD Athlon 64 3200+, which has the 1MB L2 Cache, plus it has a internal FSB of 1600MHz (vs intels external 800MHz FSB) and its memory controller is in the CPU as well which causes it to acess the memory many times faster than when the controller was in the northbridge chip of the older AMD XPs and current P4'*. Makes my old P4 2.4GHz look like a pentium 133.

Yea, once you get the 64 bit OS, it will bring out the full potential.

I almost had to change my underwear when It fully installed Win XP in 10 minutes ( after the format). At 3pm today the format was completed, at 3:11pm I was installing my video drivers and fixing my resolution. It installed programs in seconds. My GF thought I was crazy. I was yelling and screaming " look at this thing go, holy crap. If this computer was a woman I'd make love to it" and other stuff like that. Of all the computer I have used and ones I have built, this ones the only one that had me simply amazed.
